Wow, tons of useful stuff in this thread - thanks. Here are some tools I have used to quickly get the text out of pictures, which has helped to extract addresses or street names.

When I hear the word “math”, I tend to think of equations and numbers. But there’s more to math than that! There are three types of math: arithmetic, algebra, and geometry. Arithmetic involves using the basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division operations. Algebra involves solving an equation or relationship between variables. Geometry involves shapes, angles, and lines. Math isn’t just about math. It’s a way of thinking. It’s a method of problem solving. Math is one of the primary tools that makes up the language of science.

Wow, this thread has a tonne of helpful information; thanks. Here are some tools I've used to quickly extract text from images, which has made it easier to extract street names or addresses.

Re: Puzzle/Mystery Cache Helpful links

Equations and numbers come to mind when I hear the term "math." But arithmetic is more complicated than that! Arithmetic, algebra, and geometry are the three categories of mathematics. The fundamental addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division operations are used in arithmetic. In algebra, an equation or connection between variables must be solved. Shapes, angles, and lines all play a role in geometry. Math is more than simply math. It is a mode of thought. It is a technique for solving issues. One of the key components of the language of science is math.

Thanks for your information. I never knew that about math.  "Arithmetic, algebra, and geometry are the three categories of mathematics." and "The fundamental addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division operations are used in arithmetic."

Farmers use modern equipment to harvest crops, unless they are managing an Amish farm. To which horses are used in place of modern equipment since horses don't run on gas or diesel, most horses run off of grass with water and are cheaper to maintain.  Shoes are not as expensive as tires for example.  Horses come in a verity of colors and sizes. Clydesdales is a type of horse that are large in size of most horses. Check out this link.
