Hi Maning,

OK. it is capable to search the house number, if there is a data.

Is it separate entry for the number?

I am planning to have a separate postgresql server, not use the OSM at
the moment. I need help on this server. If I can not find a free
server, I think I need to find a internet service provider with 24//7
postgresql server.

The postgresql server just need one database and one table i.e. Street

Street (
Place? <--------- for city and towns but I think no really
Users?* <----- default - Juan dela Cruz  :-), Anonymous

* Good for statistics for contributors.

The iphone app users will just input the StreetNo and StreetName. That it.

I think we don't want the users to get OSM accounts,less work for them
the better. Just the just street number and street names are good

However, we will find a mechanism how to integrate this latter on.

Any other suggestions how can make this project going.

I will register as Apple developer and have this as my first app :-).


Regards, Noli
