Quote from: Radim V on May 17, 2021, 16:07:25@lor74casYes, I am aware of this (temporary) limitation. Currently the term in the search bar is only matched against names of points in the local-unspecified language and the language of the client. Other tags are not taken into consideration. (Cannot be taken into consideration directly, as the OSM dataset is not the only possible source of data.) How this search is intended to work (and already works internally, with some minor performance issues):Let us assume:- Every point belongs to one or more categories. - English is the language of client (mobile app or web planner user).- "wate" is the term in the search bar.1. A localized fulltext search matches "wate" against names (in local language and in english as specified). As you noticed exactly. Currently, this is the end.2. Another fulltext search matches "wate" against small dictionaries of synonyms (thesaurus). "wate" could mean: waterfall, watermill, drinking_water, fountain, hot_spring. Why fountain, hot_spring? Because somebody has decided that water and hot_spring are semantically close enough. These little sets of synonyms, language specific, are configurable on the fly, not stored in a hard manner.So suggestions are proposed after points that match by their names. Are you searching for drinking_water, waterfall, watermill, fountain perhaps?3. If we chose one of the suggestion, another search runs (Yes, I actually mean waterfall. Yes, i actually mean all accommodation possibilities combined by typing "room"). This time a localized search matches point by their category, not name. Only category is taken into consideration here, as a source of point can be e.g. Wikipedia, which is not tagged by OSM standards.Hope this makes some sense, I attach some dictionaries (thesauruses), both specific and more generic to make it more clear.
QuoteOnline LoPoints now fully support opening times and once we switch offline LoPoints to the new system (not sure if this year), it will be available also offline.The best how to get this into the app is by editing OpenStreetMap directly!Editing in the app is doable, but is it really needed? Is there any reason to have opening times for any point in the app and do not have it in the OpenStreetMap data?
Quote from: Menion on May 25, 2021, 12:00:30I've got your point. Comparing opening hours to phone/email is not ideal. Phone/email may be simply added to a place where a friend lives, to anything interesting for you. Opening hours belong to any public service that should be in the OSM in all cases. And if it isn't? Add it there. When it appears? Good question. I think that Radim does updates 3x per week in the online LoPoints database.Anyway, I really think that contribution to OSM is a top priority. Maybe some easier integration with app like StreetComplete may be useful solution?
