[mkgmap-dev] searching for housenumbers

From Felix Hartmann extremecarver at gmail.com on Thu Mar 10 17:39:28 GMT 2011

I don't really see why all the work on matching country/city to streets 
is necessary, as it should be enough if addresses via housenumbers that 
are present in OSM as such (containing all needed infos) would be good 
enough. Is there any knowledge on how house numbers are encoded in 
garmin maps or not?

Once searching for housenumbers would be possible, I think it would not 
take too long til people enter that data. Searching for streets as 
streets could be reserved upon special calls in the style-file (e.g. for 
hiking trails or cycle routes).
