Question

Which fields should be used when preparing to geocode against Thomas Brothers street data?

Answer

• In ArcView GIS 3.x, the reference data's geocoding index needs to be built to geocode a table of addresses or locate addresses individually.

• In ArcGIS 8.x, a geocoding service needs to be created to geocode a table of addresses or locate addresses individually.

• In ArcGIS 9.x, an address locator needs to be created to geocode a table of addresses or locate addresses individually.

• In ArcGIS 10.x, an address locator needs to be created to geocode a table of addresses or locate addresses individually.

Use the following field mappings when geocoding with the US Streets with Zone address or locator style:

ADLF = House Left From 
ADLT = House Left To
ADRF = House Right From
ADRT = House Right From
DIRPABV_AL = Prefix Direction
PREF_ALF = Prefix Type
NAME_ALF = Street Name
SUFFABV_ALF = Street Suffix
DIRSABV_AL = Suffix Direction
ZIPCOLEF = Left Zone
ZIPCORGT = Right Zone
