Address Search Functionality in MapCortex Free WebMap

Today the address search functionality has been added to MapCortex Free WebMap application. This does not seem such an exciting improvement as literally any major web map system contains this element. So why is this feature so special for this application?

Actually the feature itself is standard - however, should you want to for example just circle a few addresses on the map and publish the image on our site then you don't need to start zooming and panning to find the address, just type it in, click and draw the circle around the address. Rinse and repeat :D...

You might ask yourself now - it is all good that this address search works great in English speaking countries but what if I am interested in locating addresses in Japan? Well, this address search functionality works well with Japanese addresses as well...have a look on this image below:

As you can see the system successfully identified the location. Same as on the next image below:

OK, you may also think now that Japan is a very advanced country, there are over 100 million Japanese speakers live there, of course the system works with Japanese addresses. Let's have a look on a much smaller country with a rather less know language - Hungary.

Using the MapCortex Free WebMap address search functionality for Hungarian addresses shows that the feature works well too - identifying and locating Hungarian addresses with high precision:

As you can see the address search functionality of the free web map application does cover multiple countries regardless of the spoken language there.

I wonder if you could share your experience locating addresses in your country using MapCortex Free WebMap. Do try to use this new functionality and leave a comment here about your experiences. Addresses from developing countries would be especially interesting to use to try out this search functionality.
