Hi!

The name finder at http://www.frankieandshadow.com/osm/ won't find "Budapesterplatz", but "Budapester Platz" is found here in Nürnberg.

While "Budapester Platz" is the correct term, it would be nice if slightly misstyped things like this would be found as well.

Could it be added to the name finders "fuzzy search engine", that "Budapesterplatz" and similiar "combined search words" are found as well

  • or will this be too complicated to implement?
