Weshalb werden viele Straßen bei der Suche auf , die schon Monate, bzw. Jahre im System sind, nicht gefunden, z.B. Bad Homburg Gluckensteinweg / Bad Homburg Kirdorfer Straße / Bad Homburg Tannenwaldallee / aber auch in Berlin, Hamburg ... Nach meinen Versuchen findet er nur eine Minderheit.

Ich muss erst bad homburg suchen und danach in einer weiteren suche die Straße. Dann gehts. Weshalb nicht in einer Suche?

Strange - maybe it's because (as you can see by clicking "details" after just entering the street) the first "Gluckensteinweg" is in suburb "Dornholzhausen", which is itself within "Bad Homburg vor der Höhe"? (I'd have a look on trac but that seems to be inaccessible to me just at this moment).

Wie schon escada schrieb, Du musst "Gluckensteinweg, Bad Homburg", "Kirdorfer Straße, Bad Homburg" usw. suchen! Hier wird's erklärt.

Did you try "streetname" , "city name" ?

I just typed "Gluckensteinweg, Bad Homburg" on and it finds the street.

"Bad Homburg Gluckensteinweg" is not found.

This is explained on

Not sure. I notice there's a node tagged with

  • name = Bad Homburg vor der Höhe
  • alt_name = Bad Homburg

Maybe some streets are close enough to that node to be associated with it while others are not? Maybe adding 'alt_name = Bad Homburg' to the boundary relation as well would solve the problem?

Bei Bad Homburg mag das so sein. ist zu prüfen. Hier aber Beispiele aus Berlin und Hamburg, di auch nicht gehen. Berlin magistratsweg / Berlin springerzeile / hamburg lämmersieth / hamburg osterbekweg / Hamburg flachsland

All those examples work for me as long as I type the street-name first.

Für Berlin und Hamburg ist es ok. Aber Bad Homburg läuft damit trotzdem nicht in einer Suche.

(21 Sep '12, 19:23) KlausB

alt_name added. Will probably take a day or two to affect searches on (if it has any effect at all).

"Kirdorfer Straße, Bad Homburg" now works!

Bad Homburg appears to be known as Bad Homburg vor der Höhe in OpenStreetMap.
