GeoTAX is able to process addresses using multiple databases at the same time. This allows you to find the best possible match from a variety of data sources and types of data (point as well as street segment data).

GeoTAX processes these multiple data sources using a default search order. When GeoTAX matches an address exactly, it stops searching rather than continuing the search in additional databases. This saves on processing time. When an exact match is not found, GeoTAX continues searching all of the available data sources for candidate address matches. The candidates are then scored and the highest scoring match from all of the data sources is returned as the match. If multiple candidates receive an identical score when matched to either the Points or Streets files, you have the option to set what results should be returned (see Returning multiple address matches). The default search order for GeoTAX is:

  • Landmark Auxiliary file

  • User Auxiliary file

  • State-supplied file

  • GeoTAX Auxiliary file

  • Points file, if licensed

  • Streets file
