Change the geocode minimum address matching score


How do you change the minimum score acceptable for an address to match with geocoding? The default is 50.


  • The minimum geocode score for the web site is set in ArcIMSparam.js, with the line:
    var minGeocodeScore=50;

    Set it lower to increase the number of candidates that will be found.
  • If using you are doing geocoding using ArcXML, you can set the "minscore" attribute in the GET_GEOCODE tag.
  • If you are using the Active X connector, you can set the "score" property on the Address Match result object.
