Gisgraphy 2.1 is out

(30.10.2010) : A new 2.1 version is out, that was not planed but GeoNames has changed the way they managed languages : language names are now not unique. This version take this into account. Due to the new language management, the importer of Gisgraphy v2.0 fails. You don't need to re-run an import or download the Gisgraphy v2.1, if the import is already done with your Gisgraphy V2.0 version. See the post on Gisgraphy forum and the one on GeoNames one.

Address Parser roadmap

(06.10.2010) : The international address parser currently implement a lot of countries it will be available as a webservice. It takes a string that represent a flat address and extract informations (house number, streettype, streetname, city, unit, POBOX, state, zip, country, and so on then it is easy to geocode it via gisgraphy or an other way. It manage streets intersection, synonyms, number as text or letter, ordinal numbers, is alphabet and case insensitive, implement frequent workaround, and several languages that's usefull for countries such as canada and belgium that speak several languages. if you want to learn more (or help), contact me
