I have around 700,000 address that I need to geocode. I want to use ESRI online service for the biggest portion (I have an organizational account with credits on it) and then put the bad matches in other online services.
Doing some tests, I realized that the ESRI service prefer matching the zipcode than matching the street and number. In my data, I'm certain that the street address is correct but I'm not certain that the zipcode is correct (in fact, a lot of the times is not).
Example (made up to avoid putting someones address in internet):
- Original Address: 1250 THOMAS WILSON PKWY, HAMILTON, ONTARIO, J0K OP5, CANADA
- Winner Match: J0K OP5, CANADA
- Runner Up Match: 1250 THOMAS WILSON PKWY, HAMILTON, ONTARIO, P7W 3G9, CANADA
I really prefer the runner up (and Google Maps too!). Do you know a way to tell ArcMap to prefer matches with street address on it than matches with zipcode?
