Case sensitivity

I noticed that a street in Solna had the name Huvudsta strand for one part, and Huvudsta Strand for another part. I corrected this in OSM, but I think that this shouldn’t need to happen, street names should be case insensitive…
(But beware of diacritical signs, I have two different streets in my home town, Stamstigen and Stämstigen)

Oof. Yeah, my code gets the data from OpenStreetMap in JSON format. Each Way record (street) has a “name” string, and I’m collecting them by matching strings.

I’m very lazy, so my first inclination is to fix the data in OSM before trying to write more buggy software clever string matching code. :laughing: I’ll think it through, though.
