Match modes determine the leniency used to make a match between your input and the reference database. Select a match mode based on the quality of your input and your desired output. For example, if you have an input database that is prone to errors, you may want to select the relaxed match mode.

The following match modes are available:

Mode

Description

Exact

Requires a very tight match. This restrictive mode generates the fewest match candidates, which decreases the processing time. When using this mode, ensure that your input is very clean; free of misspellings and incomplete addresses.

Close

Default. Requires a close match and generates a moderate number of match candidates.

Relaxed

Allows a loose match and generates the most match candidates, which increases the processing time and results in more multiple matches. Use this mode if you are not confident that your input is clean; free of misspellings and incomplete addresses. This is the only mode that does not respect the street parity when making an address match.

Use the following to specify the match mode:

Batch processing

Use the Address Match Mode field in the CONFIG parameter card.

Integrator Series API

Use the cMatchMode element in the GTXINPUT parameter structure prior to calling GTXMatchAddress.

Callable Functions

Use the MCA-ADDR-MATCH-MODE field in the Matcher Control Area prior to Calling the GTMATCH program.
