Can a geocoding service randomly disperse geocoded points with a polygon when matching against a polygon reference data feature class?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


No. Addresses that are matched to a polygon feature are located at the centroid of the polygon feature. There isn't an option to randomly disperse geocoded points within the polygon feature.
