addresses with the five digit ZIP Code in your street maps.
Geocoding street based addresses that
contain five digit ZIP Codes can now be completed in MapInfo with
your own street data using the left ZIP and right ZIP as attributes
of the street segments. No more five digit ZIP Code polygons required.
GeoCode from International Computer
Works, Inc. (ICW) is an add on application module that works with
street maps that include the left and right five digit ZIP Code
along with the traditional address information for each segment.
The interface for GeoCode was
designed to be intuitive with a simple point and click capability
to define the file to be geocoded as “Records” and the
map file as the “Search” file.
The user has the option of using the MapInfo abbreviation
file through the “Using .ABB” check box.
Additionally, the symbol style can be set through
the standard MapInfo Symbol Style interface.
Road files created with TIGERUS©
or the ICW Universal TIGER Translator© (UTT©)
contain all of the attributes to maximize the effectiveness of the
features in GeoCode.
Upon completion, GeoCode reports
the elapsed time and other key statistics about the results of the
geocoding process. GeoCode is used in the ICW schools
and elections products.
GeoCode is available today to
solve geocoding problems through leveraging your existing investment
in street data. Map your geocoded records without dependence upon
five digit ZIP Code polygons and improve upon your geocoding accuracy.
