The input table that contains addresses or places to geocode in CSV, XLS, or XLSX format or in a file geodatabase table.
The portal locator that will be used to geocode the table.
You can select a locator from the populated list of locators on the active portal or browse the active portal for other available locators. Locators that have been set as utility services on the active portal will be available by default.
The ArcGIS World Geocoding Service is disabled for this tool. Use the Geocode Addresses tool if you want to use the ArcGIS World Geocoding Service.
Address Field Mapping
The address fields used by the locator are mapped to fields in the input table of addresses. Select Single Field if the complete address is stored in one field in the input table, for example, 303 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30308. Select Multiple Fields if the input addresses are divided into multiple fields such as Address, City, State, and ZIP for a general United States address.
Some locators support multiple input addresses fields such as Address, Address2, and Address3. In this case, the address component can be separated into multiple fields and the address fields will be concatenated at the time of geocoding. For example, 100, Main St, and Apt 140 across three fields or 100 Main St and Apt 140 across two fields both become 100 Main St Apt 140 when geocoding.
If you choose not to map an optional input address field used by the locator to a field in the input table of addresses, specify that there is no mapping using <None> in place of a field name.
Specifies the file type to which the geocode results will be written.
The folder where the output geocoding results will be written.
If the output is a .csv or .xls file, an output file will be placed in the specified folder.
If the output is a feature class, an output file geodatabase will be created and placed in the specified folder, and the new file geodatabase will contain the geocoded feature class. The output file geodatabase and feature class in the file geodatabase will have the same name.
The name of the output geocoded results.
The country or countries to search for the geocoded addresses. This parameter is available for locators that support a country parameter and will limit geocoding to the selected countries. Making a country selection will improve the accuracy of geocoding in most cases. If a field representing countries in the Input Table parameter is mapped to the Country Role: Field Name, the country value from the Input Table parameter will override the Country parameter.
If no country is specified, geocoding is performed on all supported countries of the locator.
The Country parameter is not supported for all locators.
Preferred Location Type
Specifies the preferred output geometry for PointAddress matches. The options for this parameter are Routing location, which is the side of street location that can be used for routing and Address location, which is the location that represents the rooftop or parcel centroid for the address. If the preferred location does not exist in the data, the default location will be returned instead. For geocode results with Addr_type=PointAddress, the x,y attribute values describe the coordinates of the address along the street, while the DisplayX and DisplayY values describe the rooftop or building centroid coordinates.
Limits the types of places the locator searches, eliminating false positive matches and potentially speeding up the search process. When no category is used, geocoding is performed on all supported categories. Not all category values are supported for all locations and countries. In general, the Category parameter can be used for the following:
This parameter is not supported for all locators.
Specifies which locator output fields are returned in the geocode results.
|Output Feature Class|
The output feature class.
The output table in CSV or XLS format, depending on the Output Type value.
