Switch to OSM for default GB geocoder? #1680
Looking at geocoder results for #1679, it seems that (at least for Bristol) the OSM geocoder results are better than the default Bing ones. It got me thinking, as OSM coverage is (pretty much) universal for the UK these days, do we want to switch the default geocoder to OSM instead of Bing?
Discussion with @dracos in Slack suggests that if we do this, we might need to write our own OSM geocoder, as we might hit Nominatim's usage limits.
