Map Data issue

Description

We are not getting a valid result returned for North Vancouver, BC. We expect that location to be found. It is not.

https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search.php?q=North+Vancouver%2C+BC&viewbox=-168.76%2C62.11%2C168.76%2C-62.11

We see the same issue with the api. I never had to report a data issue before, so if there is some other channel to do it, please let me know.

There is only North Vancouver City and North Vancouver District, neither of which is a full match for Nominatim, which is why it has trouble finding it.

In general, this is a bug tracker for software and not the right place to report data issues. For things like this, you can add a note on the main map or, even better, fix the issue yourself, see http://www.openstreetmap.org/fixthemap. There are also local mailing lists where people can help if you are not sure what is going on.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
