The table on the portal that contains addresses or places to geocode.
The portal locator that will be used to geocode the input table from the portal.
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 in the active portal will be available by default. If the portal locator you want to use is not in the populated list, ask your portal administrator to add the locator as a portal utility service, and configure the locator for batch geocoding.
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 mapping of address fields used by the locator 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 split into multiple fields such as Address, City, State, and ZIP for a general United States address.
Some locators support multiple input address 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 would 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 by using <None> in place of a field name.
Output Feature Layer Name
The name of the output geocoded feature layer that will be created on the portal.
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 Input Address Field, the country value from the Input Table parameter will override the Country parameter.
If no country is specified, geocoding is performed using 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. 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 using 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.
