Mismatched streets

This query can be used to highlight issues with address data.

It find features with an addr:street tag whose value doesn't match the name of local street.

The intention is to highlight potential data errors. There may be reasons why the tags and values are different, but it might also highlight simple typos.

Try adjusting it to use your local town by replacing "Bath" with a different name.

This is adapted from an example given in the Overpass developer blog. It shows some advanced features of OverpassQL language including creating objects, manipulating sets and use of functions.
