[mkgmap-dev] Address indexing for non-city places

From Clifford Nolan Clifford.Nolan at ul.ie on Wed Mar 23 20:37:34 GMT 2011

I was experimenting with the address search on Garmin Oregon, Nuvi and in Apple Basecamp.  It's a very impressive advance.

I noticed that when I was searching for a street that was closer to a "locality" than it is to the nearest "village", then the street was indexed as street/locality and failed to find in address search.  Other nearby streets that were closer to the village node got tagged as street/village and were found successfully in the search.  I suspect the same would be true in other situations - a street closer to a subordinate place node will not be found.

Hope that is clear!

Perhaps smaller places like localities, hamlets, etc might have a pseudo city tag that points to the nearest city or village.  Would that solve the problem?
