Troubles & Questions / Re: Offline address search?

you know an idea? - if address/house/building numbers are too difficult - maybe have a function to search by intersection. So you put in two streets where they cross. Street corners. That might be an easier method

@Menion

Numbers of course would be ideal - some street are very long...

this is from the 'whats new' on the Gisgraphy website:

What's new :

Gisgraphy V 4.0 is on the road ;) (house numbers, Postgis 2.0 compatibility, relevance, and more ;)). no date given but probably in first quater of 2013.
Gisgraphy is candidate to the Dataconnexions competition, launched by the french government via the ETALAB mission. The goal is to promote the usage of open data and encourage projects that use it.
To folow the one version / per year (and After more than one year of development), I am proud to announce that the Version 3.0 of Gisgraphy is now available. It is a major versions where a LOT of functionalities has been added. See Why you should update... You can try it here.

it mentions 'house numbers'

I found some interesting info.

OFFLINE ADDRESS SEARCH DATA DOWNLOAD.


You can download the Geocoding / Geonames data from an open source website:

http://http://download.gisgraphy.com/openstreetmap/

I read that google uses the same data for address searches.


PLEASE make Locus Pro have the abilty to download these files and have offline address search!!!

It shouldn't be too difficult should it?

any luck with offline address search?

You better hurry up.

I am starting to use OsmAnd. It is an open source android navigation app with offline vector maps AND OFFLINE ADDRESS search.

this is your competition - and it is free:

I would prefer to use Locus Pro - but lack of offline address search means I am using OsmAnd more and more...
