驴OCR not finding all the places?

Closed

Hello, i've donde multiple runs in a small area in order to find all the food related business. I've found that some places are hidden to OCR even with a 21 zoom. Is there any way to access this places (i don't care if the run takes longer or if it is more costly). Thanks in advance, Arnau

Hi, could you send us the places that the actor missed? We're currently testing a new version with improved search capabilities. We can test whether the new version finds those places.

The problem is that some places only appear on the map if you introduce a search term like "restaurant"

Hi, sorry for late reply. Take a look at this run. It found 23 places including the one you provided. I used your list of categories and the following search terms:

1"searchStringsArray": [
2    "restaurant",
3    "store",
4    "shop",
5    "bar",
6    "hotel",
7    "cafe",
8    "store",
9    "pub",
10    "market"
11  ],

If I still missed some places, we can adjust the search terms. Let me know.
