administrative level 7 used for search
|Reported by:||trial||Owned by:||geocoding@…|
In France (at least) it makes little sense to use boundary:administrative, level 7 (canton).
Reason: this level is only due to the strange elections made to administrative level 6 (département), it has little (if any) sense for ordinary people.
"biocoop, Mellac" retrieves the correct result.
But for "everybody", you can mention the Biocoop as the Biocoop in Quimperlé, the strip mall of "Quimperlé" being located in Mellac.
"Biocoop near Quimperlé" fails
"Biocoop, Quimper" works. It should not (Mellac is not really near to Quimper)
"Biocoop, Quimperlé works. It should (Mellac is close to Quimperlé).
In http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/details.php?place_id=3673801205, you see that Mellac is part of the administrative region "Canton" of Quimper.
This is pretty similar to bug #4812, but may be a modification for mon bug could change the results for the other.
- B.: may be the "good" or the "right" solution is to remove the administrative level 7 for France in OSM as this "information" is more a problem than anything else (the name is the name of the town being the chef-lieu de canton, the side effect is that you see Mellac, Quimper (at most the result should be Mellac, canton de Quimper, otherwise the second town is misleading). So maybe more something to report to openstreetmap.fr?
