Hi

I was searching for a place on http://www.openstreetmap.org and had one letter wrong. My search string was "willi brandt frankfurt" and it showed up no results, because the place is called "Willy-Brandt-Platz". A search with "willy brandt frankfurt" would have displayed the result. Would it be possible to implement a search function that is more tolerant to typographical errors ?

Greetings, Bob

Certainly possible but unlikely to happen in the near future unless somebody volunteers to implement it.

Duplicate of #3273.
