Fuzzy String Matching Tool

Compare strings such as license plate numbers for similarity




This tool uses Levenshtein distance to calculate the difference between two case-sensitive text sequences.

You can learn more about Vladimir Levenshtein and how this tool is used by EasyALPR in our blog entry about calculating license plate similarity.

The specific implementation is ratio() using the python version of fuzzywuzzy.

If comparing license plate numbers, consider using uppercase for both fields.
