The Landmark Auxiliary file provides you a way to specify customized address information in your input records; this file also includes latitude/longitude spatial information.

When matching to a Landmark Auxiliary file, complete the following procedure.

Step 1: Create the Landmark Auxiliary file

Directions for creating and editing the Landmark Auxiliary file are located in Appendix G: Auxiliary Files under Landmark Auxiliary file.

Step 2: Load the Landmark Auxiliary file

On Windows:

  1. Click Start > Programs > Precisely > GeoTAX > Database Load Utility.

    The GeoTAX Database Load Utility dialog box opens.

  2. Select the Landmark auxiliary file option.

  3. To complete the loading process, follow the instructions provided by the utility.

The utility installs the Landmark Auxiliary file in the database location for GeoTAX.

On UNIX/Linux:

Copy the Landmark Auxiliary file into the $G1GTXDB or $G1GTX/DB directory.

On z/OS:

  1. Use the delivered file, yourhlq.GEOTAX.LDMKFILE as a template to create your own data file.

  2. Use steps 5 through 7 of the JCL member LDVSAM1 to load your LandMark file into a VSAM file for use in GeoTAX. Be sure to include this file as the DSN in the DD AUXFILE in the JCL that runs GeoTAX (ie IVPFILE).

There are no further setup requirements to perform a match to the Landmark Auxiliary file - GeoTAX automatically determines if there is a Landmark Auxiliary file present and attempts matches to it.
