The offset function in ArcView geocoding does not consistently place the points at the specified distance off the line.
Possible causes to this problem:
- The line theme that was the geocoding reference is not projected or is in a projection that does not preserve distance.
- The point marker selected for the geocoded point theme is one where the 'glyph' portion of the symbol is not centered within the symbol's extent.
- The line theme itself uses a linear offset.
The solutions given below are based on the cause.
For exact measurements between point markers and line symbols, verify there is a line symbol offset of zero.
