This topic provides a brief walkthrough of how to geocode a table of addresses using the Geocode Addresses geoprocessing tool in ArcGIS Pro.
Open the Geocode Addresses geoprocessing tool.
- Click the Analysis tab. In the Geoprocessing group, click Tools to open the Geoprocessing pane.
- In the Geoprocessing pane, click the Toolboxes tab. Click Geocoding Tools > Geocode Addresses to open the tool in the pane.
- Fill out the Geocode Addresses tool.
- Choose the Input Table containing the addresses you want to geocode in one of the following ways: copy and paste the path for the table into the text box; click the Browse button , browse to the table, and double-click the table; or if you have already added the table to your project, browse to it in the Catalog pane, and drag it into the Input Table text box.
- Choose the Input Address Locator you want to use for geocoding in one of the following ways: copy and paste the path for the locator into the text box; click the Browse button , browse to the locator, and double-click the locator; or if you have already added the locator to your project, browse to it in the Catalog pane, and drag it into the Input Address Locator text box.
All of the locators that were added to your project automatically through your portal connection are checked for batch geocoding capability. If you can batch geocode with those locators, they will be added to the Geocode Addresses tool automatically so that you can optionally select one from the drop-down menu for Input Address Locator.
Geocoding a table of addresses using the World Geocoding Service requires an ArcGIS Online for organizations subscription. For more information about the World Geocoding Service, see Connect to the ArcGIS Online World Geocoding Service.
- For the Input Address Fields, choose one of the following options from the drop-down menu: Single Field (the complete input address, such as 303 Peachtree St, Atlanta, GA 30308, is stored in one field in your address table) or Multiple Field (each input address in your table is broken into multiple fields, such as Address, City, State, and ZIP Code for a general United States address).
- Click the drop-down arrow of each input address field, and select the corresponding field from the input address table. Field Name corresponds to the expected fields for the locator you have chosen, and Alias Name corresponds to the field name used in your table.
- Select the Output Feature Class location where you want to save the geocoding results in one of the following ways: type the path to the file geodatabase where you want to save the new feature class, making sure to include a name for the new file, or click the Browse button , browse to the file geodatabase you want to save the resulting feature class in, name the feature class, and click Save.
- Click Run to run the tool.
The progress of the tool displays at the bottom of the pane. When the matching process completes, the output feature class is added to the map.
Once you have a geocoded feature class, you can add individual geocoding results from the Locate pane if you want. For more information about adding individual records to an existing feature class, see Add geocoded point to an existing feature class.
If you want to review or change any of the results, right-click the new feature class in the Table of Contents pane, and click Data > Rematch Addresses . The Rematch Addresses pane opens, and you can use it to interactively review and rematch your geocoding results.
