Geocoder returning different data for same record

See original GitHub issue

Problem Synopsis:

I have implemented a basic search widget to allow users to search for properties by address, PIN14, or owner name. Current if a user searches by owner’s name that has multiple properties attached to it. I get different results based on whether I:

  • Type the full owner’s name and press enter

  • Select the owner’s name from the drop down suggestions.

I have inserted a gif below to illustrate what I mean.

Pressing Enter after entering owner’s name: Enter Owner's Name Press Enter

Result after using the drop down suggestions: Select from dropdown suggestions

Basic Example: Recreate Issue:

  1. Enter the following owner into the search input ZWOLINSKI JO GAIL LF EST press enter.

  2. You should see 3 records returned. This is correct

  3. Enter the same name but press the down arrow to select a suggestion and press enter.

  4. You should see only 1 record returned when you select ZWOLINSKI JO GAIL LF EST as a suggestion.

Expected result: Whether a users presses enter or uses the drop down selection all properties related to that owner should be returned.

tie into requestend

i was thinking of .on('results') but yes.

i can appreciate that you want to take advantage of ‘fuzzy search’ but you’re definitely not describing a typical geocoding workflow.

my gut reaction is that your best bet would be to fire off another query in the background after a suggestion is selected if you’re worried about duplicate matches.

happy to hear @jwasilgeo and any other opinions/suggestions too though.
