[mkgmap-dev] how to improve data fro address search

From maning sambale emmanuel.sambale at gmail.com on Fri Oct 16 18:42:06 BST 2009

First of all, congrats to the great work in the mdr branch! I'm
enjoying the new "Find places" function.  A couple of observations.

1. Using the address search I see the general trend where the name of
the street includes:
streetname, village, country

Why no city/town?

2. Adding a city doesn't give any result.

3. Adding a complete address i.e.
number: 114
street: M. H. Del Pilar
city: Marikina
Shows no results. The data above followed the karlsruche schema

I'm thinking this maybe a data problem, any advice how do I improve
OSM data to improve mkgmap search index?
