UK Geocoder Goes into Beta

UK Address Geocoder Goes into Beta
Been tinkering with this on and off with a good programmer, but made the geocoder more efficient and have checked data is not using and copyrighted data sources.

Uses the Geocoder Map

worked from the UK example given
http://geo.localsearchmaps.com/?street=48+Leicester+Square&city=London &country=UK
and using that output
map.centerAndZoom(new GPoint(-0.130427, 51.510036), 4);
to centre on a google map.

try it soon.

pending features - icon displaying in the middle with info window display the input address.
get better results up to 95/96% match or nearest point to input address.

quadruple check data source is not crown copyright (have cross-referenced results with address point and they do NOT match).
