Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi, I'm using Openstreetmap for a web application where I need to show a loto of Pushpin by address and city datas. In a lot of cases the Address is not recognized by Openstreetmap: - or because in my data is written incorrectly (es. VIA DELL'ARTIGIANO 12, Monastier di Treviso" the correct is “via dell’artigianATo 12”. - Or because is incorrect in Openstreetmap(es. "via Montegrappa 80/c moriago della battaglia" is right, but in Openstreetmap is codificated as "Via Monte Grappa" that is wrong.

HOw can I fix it? Google Maps recognize 99% of the time also the incorrect addresses, is there a way to geolocalize the pushpin in other way on openstreetmap? (maybe using the geocodification of Google). Thank you

There are a variety of geocoders using OpenStreetMap data. Some of them may have better "fuzzy" matching than others.

As a (mostly) volunteer contributed map OSM does have variable levels of completeness from region to region, so some of the information you need may not be available.

Thank you, your answer was very useful. I try all the engines in the link and in the end I understood I need to use Google or Bing maps. No one of the others can find the right position if the address is not well written. Thank you very much.
