Twofishes is a coarse (ie, not a street geocoder, it goes down to the city/neighborhood/poi level)splitting (it can break up "pizza new york" into query: pizza, where: new york)geocoder (it translates from string queries to lat/lngs on the earth)based primarily on geonames data

Lior Kirsch's insight:

Examples:
