It could be more accurate or it could be less accurate because it's based on the USCB TIGER data set, but have you considered using an address validation service to quickly handle the geocoding of your list of addresses? As long as they have an address and a zip code or even an address and a city/state, most address validation services should be able to ...
It looks like combining the fields was what I was looking for. I was so set on using separate fields it didn't occur to me to try that. If anyone isn't super comfortable with the field calculator, I used this to combine the separate fields together: [Street_Num] & " " & [Street_Name]
While Geocoding the addresses, can you offset the points from the street so each point is closer to the real Parcel? For the points that don't intersect a Parcel, applying a Spatial Join to the Closest Parcel may work most of the time.
I would recommend standardizing the addresses (address normalization, correction). The output can be recombined into fields that share the same formatting. There are also other services that can found if the arcmap version isn't your flavor. From there, the two can be joined. Sounds simple, but it may get complicated. Two posts I've seen recently on this ...
Your question is to select the parcels. This won't select the parcels but it might be a close second: Spatial Join Nearest Feature by Straight Line Could you make a selection based off of the results of the join?
Lets say that you want to geocode the following address: 42xx Ashland Ave Baltimore MD 21205 One method would be to add the previously mentioned "50" to get 4250. Geocoding this will get you pretty close. Another method, since you know that it will definitely be between 4200 and 4299, would be to attempt validating each address. Yes, all 100 of them. ...
It is currently not possible at 10.1 to use arcpy to change locator settings.
Yes, your example seems logical, however I think you mean georeference not geocode. To start this setup you can do the following: Create a new polygon feature class defined with a spatial reference (in meters) that matches your geographic area of interest. Load in your polygon layer into ArcMap and start an edit session on it. Zoom in on the map to the ...
Did you install the development branch, as it mentioned in the link you provided? The reverse geocoding feature is currently in an experimental but stable development branch, which you can checkout here: svn checkout http://geopy.googlecode.com/svn/branches/reverse-geocode geopy cd geopy/ sudo python setup.py install You may ...
