Im using TIGER lines to geocode a table of addresses. Say for instance the address range for a street is 1100-1200. What would be the best way to match an address such as 1094?

  • something like 1050 200th Ave, whereas the address range for 200th Ave is like 1052-1100.

    Based on your comment below, it seems like the TIGER data is not as complete as you might need. What is your area of interest? Is there a regional dataset available that is more complete? Apr 19, 2013 at 0:12

Address locator Style field, select “US Address Dual Ranges.” For Reference Data, select “Streets” from the drop-down menu. In the Field Map area, make sure that every field with an asterisk has an entry under “Alias Name.” The field for Street Name should be assigned to FULLNAME.

  • Yea that's what I do. I guess the new addresses i'm trying to geocode aren't included in the TIGER lines.

  • The reason the examples you gave above are not matching is because they are outside the ranges, like you specified. The way you would have to locate those is using the manual geocoding process. The other option is to find a dataset that has a wider range of addresses for each street. Apr 19, 2013 at 0:14
