I'm working on search engine targetting the Ivory Coast (a west African country).
First of all I invite you to take a look of my website: www.ivoiresearch.net. Try what follows and explain to me what you mean the problem is and then tell me how you think the problem can be solved.
If you visit my website and try to search for addresses by typing words like "assurance" you will get lots of results. However not all of the adresses can be found on google maps, although I use Google Direction API in my code.
I can´t make the function "Directions" work properly, since not all places can be found (especially places with following french letters in the name: "é", "è", "ê", "u`", "ô" and "î").
Obviously I've overseen some important feature. That's the reason why I'm looking for a web developer with GIS skills to help me optimize my scripts and codes.
I'm looking forward to hear from you.
PS: I've made my design in php.
