There is a good chance that you will immediately get the result you wanted, but you can try to get better results if you know how the global location search
- The search is in "exact mode" when exactly two letters are entered. That means that you will have to enter at least three letters, if the name of the desired place is three or more characters long. If you are, however, searching for e.g. "Au" in Germany, you can enter "au" in the search form and will not be bothered with the results of all the other bigger cities that start with "Au".
- Blanks do not influence the search results. Both "Newyork" or "New York" will give the same results. Neither is the search case sensitive nor does it pay attention to special characters. A search for "nE?w'y(Or)k" is still the same as a search for "New York".
- Type in more characters to get better results.
- Use the sort function if you want to change the order of the results.
Not all places
are in the database. Outside of your home country
, places often have slightly different spellings. If you can't find the desired place, try one of the following:
- use "j" or "y", instead of "i", or vice-versa;
- use "th" or "t" instead of "d" or "dh", or vice-versa;
- use "b" or "bh" instead of "p", or vice-versa;
- try "z" or "sz" instead of "s", or "ss" instead of "s", or vice-versa;
- try "ae" instead of "e" or "a", or vice-versa;
- try an "alias": a different name for the same place, e.g. "New York" instead of "Nova York" or "Roma" instead of "Rome".
- search for a place in the vicinity of the desired place.
If you are not sure in which country the desired location is located, there are several possibilities:
- You are looking at the map and move the needle to where you suspect the desired location.
- Locate the place on one of the major search portals (Google, bing) and thereby determine the land. Then you give the land to the meteoblue local search.
