Rematches addresses in a geocoded feature class.


  • The input feature class must be a feature class created by the Geocode Addresses tool or a process in which a table of addresses was geocoded.

  • An ArcGIS Online for organizations organizational subscription is required and consumes credits if you rematch addresses in the geocoded feature class using the ArcGIS World Geocoding Service. The organizational account must have enough credits to complete the entire rematch request.
