Location codes indicate the locational accuracy of the assigned geocode.

Note: An accurately placed candidate is not necessarily an ideal candidate. Examine the match codes and/or result codes in addition to location codes to best evaluate the overall quality of the candidate.

The location section of the Geo Addressing SDK output, returns additional details about the type, description, or designation of the address.

Type Explanation
ADDRESS_POINT Represents a location point on an addressable property. 'description' property may provide more information on the specific location. For example, it may provide more information around if the point is located on a particular structure.
ADDRESS_INTERPOLATED The precise location for the property is unknown. The address location is assigned based on street segment end points.
NEAR_BY_ADDRESS Represents a location with an assumed address property based on other addresses near it.
STREET Represents a location at street level. No particular address property available.
POSTAL Represents a location at PO BOX level or at a postal boundary based on postal code or postal code extension. The description and designation field may provide more enhanced information.
NEIGHBORHOOD Represents a location at Neighborhood level.
SUBURB Represents a location at Suburb level.
CITY Represents a location at City level.
ADMIN1 Represents a location at state, province, or region level.
ADMIN2 Represents a location at county or district level.
COUNTRY Represents a location at Country level.
UNKNOWN Either the location is not available or the level for the location is not available.
Description Explanation
POSTAL_BUILDING Represents a point located on an address building. and the entire postal code comprises a singular address. i.e. College campus.
INTERSECTION Represents a point located on a street intersection.
STREET_BLOCK Represents a point located on a street. 'designation' field may provide how it was derived.
PO_BLOCK Represents a point located on a PO_BOX
BUILDING Represents a point located on a building. 'designation' field may provide more enhanced information if available.
PROJECTED_POINT Represents a point that was projected using the centerline offset feature. You must have both a point and a street range database to use the centerline offset feature.
POSTAL_CODE Represents a point located in postal code boundary. 'designation' field may provide more information.
POSTAL_CODE_EXT Represents a point located in postal code extension boundary. 'designation' field may provide more information.
POINT_OF_INTEREST Represents a point located on business entity. i.e. Starbucks
PARCEL Represents a point located in parcel boundary. 'designation' field may provide more enhanced information if available.
BUILDING Represents a point located on building. 'designation' field may provide more enhanced information if available.
FRONT_DOOR Represents a point located on Front door of a building or structure.
DRIVEWAY Represents a point located on driveway. 'designation' field may provide more enhanced information if available.
STREET_ACCESS_POINT Represents a point located on street entrace to a prcel
PARCEL_POINT Represents a point located in parcel boundary. When unable to match to an input unit number, or when the unit number is missing from an address location with multiple units, the "base" parcel information is returned, the address is not standardized to a unit number, and additional information, such as an Assessor's Parcel Number, is not returned.
BACKFILL_POINT The precise parcel centroid is unknown. The address location assigned is based on two known parcel centroids.
VIRTUAL_POINT The precise parcel centroid is unknown. The address location assigned is relative to a known parcel centroid and a street segment end point.
Designation Explanation
CENTROID The calculated centroid of a given structure or boundary.
CALCULATED_WITH_PARCEL_AND_CENTERLINE Point was calculated using the midpoint of a parcel's street frontage at a distance from the center line.
CALCULATED_WITH_POINT_AND_STREET Represents the interpolation between one point and one street segment end point. If DATA_TYPE is USER_DATA then user data was used for the calculation.
CALCULATED_WITH_STREET_SEGMENTS Represents a location that was calculated using street segments.
CALCULATED_WITH_TWO_STREET_SEGMENTS Represents a location that was calculated using only two street segments.
CALCULATED_WITH_USER_DATA Represents a location that was calculated using user data and datasets provided for address processing.
CENTER_LINE_PROJECTED  The result is an address point that was projected using the centerline offset feature. You must have both a point and a street-range database to use the centerline offset feature.
INTERPOLATED_INTERSECTION Interpolated (divided-road) intersection geocode. Attempts to return a centroid for the intersection.
MIDPOINT_BETWEEN_RANGE The geocode is placed along a single street segment, midway between the interpolated location of the first and second input house numbers in the range.
MODIFIED_SEGMENT_WITH_POINT The result was generated by using address-point data to modify the candidate's segment data.
MULTIPLE_USPS_SEGMENTS The input range spans multiple USPS segments. The geocode is placed on the endpoint of the segment which corresponds to the first input house number, closest to the end nearest the second input house number.
RELATIVE_TO_MULTI_PARCEL The precise parcel centroid is unknown. The address location assigned is based on two known parcel centroids.
RELATIVE_TO_PARCEL_AND_STREET_CENTER The precise parcel centroid is unknown. The address location assigned is relative to a known parcel centroid and a street segment end point.
RELATIVE_TO_STREET Represents a point located on the primary access road (most commonly a driveway) at a perpendicular distance of between 33-98 feet (10-30 meters) from the main roadway.
SEGMENT_WITHOUT_SHAPE Placeholder. Used when the starting and ending points of the matched segment contain the same value and shape data is not available.
