#4771 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Implement approximate string matching

Reported by: The RedBurn Owned by: geocoding@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: nominatim Version: 2.0
Keywords: Cc:


Users don't always know correct the spelling of a place or they can misspell it. Using approximate string matching algorithms would allow us to suggest a spelling correction.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Search for "Cannada"

Expected result: Nominatim should suggest "Canada" Result: We just get results for "Cannada"
