You can designate the search area to encompass a finance area or an expanded area specified by distance.

Searching a Finance area

A finance area is the default search area in GeoTAX. A finance area is a region defined by the U.S. Postal Service and typically consists of a set of contiguous ZIP Codes. GeoTAX will search the finance area defined by the input lastline.

Searching an Expanded area

The search area can be extended up to a 99-mile radius from the centroid of the input ZIP Code to assist in finding a match when the input address contains limited or inaccurate city or ZIP Code information. The expanded area is confined to within the state’s borders.

Use the following to designate the search area:

Batch Processing

Use the Search Area Option field in the CONFIG parameter card. When the value of the Search Area Option is set to ‘2’, you can set the Expanded Distance Radius property to tell GeoTAX how far to expand the search with a value from 1-99 miles.

Integrator Series API

Use the cSearchAreaOpt element in the GTXINPUT parameter structure prior to calling GTXMatchAddress. To expand the radius of the search area, set the desired radius in miles in the szSearchRadius element.

Callable Functions

Use the MCA-SEARCH-AREA-OPT field in the Matcher Control Area prior to Calling the GTMATCH program. To expand the radius of the search area, set the desired radius in miles in the MCA-SEARCH-RADIUS field.
