#3274 closed defect (fixed)

current map section influences search too much

Reported by: Kerridge Owned by: geocoding@…
Priority: major Milestone: Wishlist
Component: nominatim Version:
Keywords: Cc:


for the search results it matters more where the map is centered than what the user actuallay typed in (even to the point that the user doesn't find a street if he's centered in another city) (e.g. A search for " Uni Bremen" outside the map section of Bremen delivers ca. 5 addresses in Oldenburg etc. which all contain the word "Uni" but not "Bremen" and after that you get the address of the "Kindertagesstätte der Uni Bremen" (the day-care-center of the university)) -> context should matter but not be able to override search terms

This should have largely been fixed with the introduction of importances but the weight on the map view is still there. If you find examples where the map view is still weighted too strongly, reopen this ticket and give examples.
