This page provides a tool that allows ‘fuzzy’ matches to be made with identified locations in eastern Burma. Given the numerous languages, dialects, and other attributes of the region, it is common for spellings of placenames to drift quite a bit. This tool makes use of the standard Levenshtein Distance algorithm to calculate the closest matches between an inputted word and a placename.
