In some cases GeoTAX cannot resolve an address match to a single best candidate. A multi-match occurs when multiple equally-scored matches are found in either the Points or Streets files. There are a couple of options for handling a multi-match outcome:

  • Accept the multiples and return the 1st match candidate in the list.

  • Do not return match candidate information (default).

To indicate whether the first match candidate information should be returned or not, use the following:

Batch Processing

Use the Accept Multiple field in the CONFIG parameter card.

Integrator Series API

Use the cAcceptMultiples element in the GTXINPUT parameter structure.

Callable Functions

Use MCA-ACCEPT-MULTIPLE in the Matcher Control Area.

Use the following to retrieve a multi-match list and to select a candidate from the multiple address matches:

Batch Processing

Not applicable.

Integrator Series API

Refer to the cNumMultiple element in the GTXOUTPUT data structure to retrieve the number of multiple match candidates found. Use the cGetMultiple element in the GTXINPUT parameter structure to select which match result should be returned.

Callable Functions

Use MOA-NUM-MULTIPLE to retrieve the number of multiple match candidates found. Use MCA-GET-MULTIPLE in the Matcher Control Area to select which match result should be returned.
