Follow these address guidelines for best performance:

  • Ensure that your input addresses are as complete and accurate as possible. If there are errors in your input addresses, the Geo Addressing SDKSpectrum Global GeocodingGeocoding REST API may still be able to geocode those addresses, but there may be more than one possible match.
  • Include postal codes in your input addresses if you have them. This is not required, but it allows the Geo Addressing SDKSpectrum Global GeocodingGeocoding REST API to perform postal geocoding. This may give you more accurate results for some addresses, depending on the country and on the completeness and accuracy of other address components.
  • Format your input addresses consistently. The Geo Addressing SDKSpectrum Global GeocodingGeocoding REST API can handle input addresses in a wide variety of input formats, or can handle unformatted (single line) input. But you can get more accurate and faster results if your input addresses are consistently formatted and conform to country-specific address conventions.
