comment How can I geocode to a shape instead of a coordinate?
@JustinY: Hi, I'm one of the developers who worked on MapIt: Global. I guess you've seen that you can search by string prefixes (example) - if you'd like fuzzy searching could I suggest you request that in the issue tracker? It's an open source project, so even if we don't have time to work on that, perhaps a volunteer will.

@RobHoare: MapIt Global doesn't use any data from GADM, it's only OpenStreetMap. (There's an importer script for GADM in the source repository, but that's only used in other installations of MapIt.)
