why is place maker missing places?
I am using the placemaker API to geocode text written in Spanish extracted from PDFs.
When I point the the placemaker at this file:
it is geocoding some of the places but not all of them.
For example, it will geocode Escuintla, Santa Rosa and Guatemala but is missing the others.
I thought perhaps the others places were missing from the yahoo database perhaps, but it sometimes will geocode, for example, Quetzaltenango
Do the Spanish characters have anything to do with this situation? Or having spaces/breaks in the file?
Any advice on what is causing certain places to be missed would be appreciated.
