Standard Batch Processed Street Level Geocoding:

  • appending census tract number
  • appending block group identifier

Manual Intervention Geocoding

Some records may only match to the 5-digit ZIP code level of geography with standard (batch processing) geocoding. If you wish to improve the geocoding accuracy for these records, manual intervention may be required. Manual intervention is time consuming, but will improve geocoding hit rates for those addresses that include intersections, directionals, or obvious typographical errors. Note that you will only be charged for records which are successfully matched. .

Geocoding for Canadian Addresses

Spatial Insights now offers geocoding of Canadian addresses and Canadian postal codes. Flexible matching options allow relaxing of the geocode results from street level to postal code centroid. As with its US counterpart, Canadian geocoding can serve to standardize address records within your data warehouse.
