Quand il y a trop de résultats via GeoNames dans la Recherche en page d'accueil OSM serait-il possible d'afficher les noms des unités administratives dans la liste ?

Exemple : la recherche du nom Torcy affiche 3 résultats identiques, sans donner plus de précisions ! Torcy, France

De même, serait-il possible de proposer de raffiner la recherche via un lien "advanced search" ?

Rough translation to english:


When there are too many results for the location search on home page (GeoNames results). Would it be possible to display the names of administrative units in the list?

Example: name lookup for "Torcy" gives 3 identical results "Torcy, France", without giving further details!

Similarly, is it possible to propose a search refining using a "advanced search" link ?

You can fill a bug (wish) in trac as currently there seems to be no ticket for displaying more information in GeoNames results.
