You must comply with the following organizational rules when creating your Landmark Auxiliary file.

  • Use semicolons in the first column to indicate a row is a comment, not a data record; GeoTAX ignores rows that begin with a semicolon.

  • Order the records within the file by descending ZIP Code then descending street name for optimal performance.

  • All records must represent one or both sides of a street.

  • All records must represent segments that are straight lines. Records cannot represent a non-straight segment.

  • If house numbers are present in the record, the house number range must be valid according to USPS rules documented in Publication 28.

  • The numeric fields, such as ZIP Codes, must contain all numbers.

  • Latitude and longitude values must be in millionths of decimal degrees.

  • Records cannot contain PO Box addresses.
