We are using a product that makes use of ArcGIS Runtime Engine 10.2. In attempting to find a particular address using the World Geocode Service (ArcGIS Online), I'm receiving nonsensical results:
Looking up: 100 Woodside Cr NW, Airdrie / Result: (1) 100 Woodside Cres NW, Airdrie, Alberta, T4B -- 87% (2) 100 Woodside Cir NW, Airdrie, Alberta, T4B -- 100%
Why does the locator return a lower match score percentage for the "correct" street type and assign a higher match score percentage to an "incorrect" street type?
I can tell you from the outset, that the street data I'm using comes from a GIS vendor that has no intention of altering the way they designate their street types: Street types will always be 2 characters.
