I get wrong address for using A2 and A3 codes for ISRAEL while searching the address in Bing maps. RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some address in Israel, I get different results when using A2 and A3 codes for the country. Following are the results that I observed. 

    OBSERVED RESULT :
    Fields:
    Street - City Description - ZIP code - Country
    1. empty - Tel Aviv - empty - ISR
    ==> Bing search: Tel Aviv,ISR
    Location recognized and correct
    2. Halechi - Tela Aviv - empty - ISR
    ==> Bing search: Halechi,Tel Aviv,ISR
    Location NOT recognized
    3. Halechi - Tela Aviv - empty - ISR
    ==> Bing search: Halechi,Tel Aviv,ISR
    ==> Change Bing search to contain: Halechi,Tel Aviv,ISRael
    Location recognized, and correct
    Idem for street Arlozorov in Tel Aviv,ISR

    4. empty - Jerusalem - empty - ISR
    ==> Bing search: Jerusalem,ISR
    Location recognized and correct
    5. Chopin - Jerusalem - empty - ISR
    ==> Bing search: Chopin,Jerusalem,ISR
    Location NOT recognized
    6. Chopin - Jerusalem - empty - ISR
    ==> Bing search: Chopin,Jerusalem,ISR
    ==> Change Bing search to contain: Chopin,Jerusalem,ISRael
    Location recognized, and correct

    EXPECTED RESULT :
    Bing Maps should refer to the correct address for Israel.
    Webpart is 'useless' for Israel, according to customer.<o:p></o:p>

    ADDITIONAL COMMENTS :
    Checked addresses also directly with http://www.bing.com/maps
    Halechi, Tel Aviv, IL ==> Illinois
    Halechi, Tel Aviv, ISR ==> no results
    Halechi, Tel Aviv, Israel
    Tel Aviv,IL ==> Yel Aviv-Yafo, Israel
    Tel Aviv,ISR ==> Yel Aviv-Yafo, Israel


    Is there any way that I know why this is happening and is there any documented link that talks about it. 

    Thank you.
