Description

Comments

1-6

KEYWORD

Parameter name: LLOUT

Required

8-10

Location to store 1-byte latitude/longitude level

Storage location for the output latitude/longitude level return code.

See Latitude/Longitude Level Return Codes for return values.

Optional

12-14

Location to store 16-byte latitude/longitude

Location on the output record for the latitude/longitude results.

Note: Must define either these fields, or fields 8-10, or fields 24-26.

Optional

16

Code Indicating source of latitude/longitude

Unused

 

18

Indicator for minimum level to post latitude/longitude

Minimum level to post latitude/longitude:

Z   ZIP Code level

T   Tract level

B   Block group level

2   ZIP+2 level Centroid

4   ZIP+4 level Centroid

R   Address level

P   Point level

Blank   No minimum

Optional

20

Storage if no answer determinable

Storage option for records with no answer:

Z   “0000000 0000000” (default)

B   All blanks

X   Do not store anything

Note: GeoTAX indicates no answer determinable if it cannot find two coordinates.

Optional

22

Disposition of records below minimum latitude/longitude coding level

Contains one of the following:

R   Output to uncoded file GTBMNCO

blank   Perform same action as no answer found.

Optional

24-26

Location to store 18 to 22-byte latitude/longitude

Output location for the alternate (18- to 22-byte) latitude/longitude results (calculates to 6 decimal places). The length posted is determined by the format selected in column 30.

Note: Must define either these fields, or fields 8-10, or fields 12-14.

Optional

28

ZIP Code level match centroid determination

Unused.

 

30

Alternate latitude/longitude format code

Indicates the format of the long alternate latitude/longitude to be posted:

A   090000000N180000000W (default)

B   090.000000N180.000000W

C   90.000000-180.000000

D   90000000-180000000

blank   Default is A.

Any other value causes a parameter record error.

Optional

32

Latitude/longitude offset amount

Specify one of the following codes for the number of feet a lat/long should be offset to the correct side of the street when a Street-level match is achieved:

A   Zero feet offset

B   20 feet offset

C   40 feet offset (default)

D   60 feet offset

blank   Default is C

Any other value will cause a parameter record error.

Optional

34

Latitude/longitude squeeze

Specifies if the lat/long should be squeezed from the street end point:

Y   Default. Apply squeeze

N   Do not apply squeeze

Optional

36-38

Location to store4-byte Lat/Long Location Code

Location on output record for Lat/Long Location Code. (For values, see Location codes).

Optional

Latitude/Longitude Level Return Codes

Latitude/Longitude General Return Codes

The output latitude/longitude return code is based in part on the input indicator that you set for the minimum level required to post the latitude/longitude coordinates. The minimum level input indicator is set in field 18 of LLOUT. The following table shows the possible return codes (indicated by an ‘X’ in the column) for the specified minimum input level.

For example, if you set a minimum level of Address level (R), then the return code would be one of the following:

  • P + Point-level Latitude/Longitude Return Code (see table for values in following section),

  • U - GeoTAX Auxiliary,

  • L - Landmark Auxiliary,

  • O - Latitude/longitude was input,

  • R - Street, or

  • I - Intersection

All other values are not applicable to an Address level match and would not be returned.

 If “Point” is set as a minimum level, then refer to Point-Level Latitude/Longitude Return Codes.
