How to search

  • Basics
  • To find a location the search engine makes 3 steps. This is the basic concept :
  • The search engine will first look for an exact match of the search words.
  • If no match is found it will search for the first 2 search words.
  • The search engine will then offer the option to continue search for words, locations and regions starting with the search words.
  • After that it will offer a deep search for cities, locations and regions containing the search words.
  • The search results are presented in different colors, white for capital cities, light gray for regions and dark gray for all other results

  • Advanced
  • The search engine will first look if the location searched for is the name of a country.
    (In the database are the country names of all countries in about 15 languages.)
  • if the search matches a country name, the engine will display the capital city of the country and the option to continue search for the search word as a location or region. (for example : France is a country but also a village.)
  • If a match is found other than in the English language the search word is first translated to English and then re-run through the search engine. The result page will offer the English results with the option to search for the original search words. (Example : Parijs is the dutch word for Paris but Parijs untranslated is also an existing location.)
