An overview of the Data Preparation toolset

The Data Preparation toolset contains tools that perform data preparation tasks. You can use these tools to prepare data for use in the Create Locator tool.


Assign Streets To Points

Uses address information, such as house numbers and street names, as well as distance, to find the best street feature candidate for a point. Address information is prioritized over distance.

Assign Zones To Streets

Assigns left and right administrative zone values—such as neighborhood, city, metro, or postal code—to street line segments for street addresses.

Split Address Into Components

Splits street address information into address components and creates a table or feature class with the additional components added as unique fields.
