This chapter describes the Geographic Coding Definition screens that define input and output locations for geographic data. This component is only available if the Geographic Coding Plus software is licensed and installed on your system.

To interface with the Geographic Coding Plus, CODE-1 Plus provides the Geographic Coding Definition screens.

Screen

Description

ZIP Code and ZIP + 4 Add-On Locations screen (C1CPG910)

Defines locations and formats of your ZIP and ZIP + 4 Codes on your output record.

Geographic Coding Storage screen (C1CPG911)

Defines storage locations of match level and census information.

Additional Geographic Coding Storage screen (C1CPG912)

Defines storage locations of USPS state abbreviations, county names, Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) information, and latitude/longitude information.

The only input data that the Geographic Coding Plus requires to obtain the geographic match is the ZIP Code. The location of the ZIP Code in your CODE-1 Plus output record is specified in the ZIP Code and ZIP + 4 Add-on Locations screen. Optionally, you may provide a ZIP + 4 Code for more precise results. Match result information from a Geographic Coding match attempt will be stored on your CODE-1 Plus output records according to your specification on the Geographic Coding Storage screens.

Note: iGeographic Coding is performed after CODE-1 Plus completes output posting.

The following figure shows the relationship between the Geographic Coding screens in CODE-1 Plus.
