Point Data products include Master Location Data (MLD), Centrus Points, HERE Points, and Centrus TomTom Points. The points data provides point-level geocoding for the most accurate placement of addresses throughout the U.S.

When matching to a Point Data file, complete the following procedure:

Load the Point Data Files

On Windows:

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

    The GeoTAX Database Load Utility dialog box opens.

     

  2. Select the GeoTAX master files option.

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

Note: An optional way to load the data is to run datasets.exe - this is an installation program provided with the data and is located in the root directory where you downloaded your data files.

On UNIX/Linux:

Copy the Point Data files into the $G1GTXDB directory (the database area).

On z/OS:

  1. Make sure there is enough space on z/OS to hold the file you will be uploading. Create a file with these attributes:

    DCB=(RECFM=FBS,LRECL=8192,BLKSIZE=24576,DSORG=PS)

  2. FTP the file up in binary mode. Alternately, copy and modify the GTXDBINS JCL member to create and FTP the data you want to use on z/OS.

Loading Point Data to a Different Folder

If you choose to load the point data into a folder other than the GeoTAX DB location, you will need to modify the setup.bat batch file, which is located in:

C:\Program Files\Precisely\GeoTAX\bin (default install location)

Edit the following command to point to the location of your data:

SET GTGSADR=%G1DB%;C:\New Folder\PointData
