On June 27, 2002 you replied to someone question (on Microsoft.Public.MapPoint )about geocoding.
You mentioned "AFIAK" as beeing very economic for a first pass.
What is AFIAK and where can I find it?
We have actually a geocoding problem in France with adresses such like stores in a commercial center. MapPoint cannot find the exact address as the street is replaced by "commercial center X".
Even if the "commercial center X" exists in MapPoint's points of interest it doesn't mach (because for the POI the commercial center is named in the "name" and not in the "street" part of the address).
