Hi list and Rob,
I want to share the results of my quick-comparison of the tools.
I've converted my living area optained from openstreetmap by using the
geocoder. Kyiv city (box with 60 KM side length), Here is a link:
So the osm file was approximately 28.4 megabytes.
php converter - conversion time: 75 seconds.
python converter - conversion time: 33 seconds.
Resulting number of points:
php converter - 7168
python converter - 7536
Also, i noticed that there are some corrupted point names in the php
version of loadstone database. By coruption i mean wrong encoding, for
example line 167:
"ÐÐ½ÑÐ¾Ð½Ð¾Ð²Ð° Ð°Ð²ÑÐ°ÐºÐ¾Ð½ÑÑÑÑÐºÑÐ¾ÑÐ°, Ð²ÑÐ». x ÐÐ¸Ð»Ð¸Ð¿Ð°
Note, that records around this one are not corrupted.
All the best,
