I have a historical addresses dataset in form:
|Name |Description |
Where "Name" is a single field with house number, street name, city and country. I have digitised two georeferenced historical maps of the location to cover the period and account for street name or geometry changes and for the addition of or removal of streets compared to present day.
This gives me point data for individual addresses and attributed polylines with geometry for the streets in the city:
AddressName: "59 Great Strand Street, Nulltown, GISland" DigitisedMapName: "Great Strand Street, Nulltown, GISland"
I now wish to join these up matching based on the street name, giving the street geometry to the address data and plotting the address a certain % along the street based on the house number.
I have tried the ArcMap 10.2.2 address locator but get 0% matched leaving only a manual selection (not feasible given the number of records).
Is it possible to complete this task in PostgreSQL instead to strip the mapped geometry from that table and give it to the AddressName record? Or are the wheels going to fall off in the joining accuracy?
