You can set the following options that affect how GeoTAX calculates the geocode for an interpolated street match.

Offset

Ensures the point does not reside in the middle of a street. Moves the point perpendicular to the portion of the street segment in which it lands by the value you specify. The default value for Offset is 40 feet. You can reconfigure the value to 0, 20, or 60 feet.

Use the following to specify an offset value:

Batch Processing

Use the Latitude/longitude offset amount field in the LLOUT parameter card.

Integrator Series API

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

Callable Functions

Use MCA-LATLONG-OFFSET in the Matcher Control Area prior to Calling the GTMATCH program.

Squeeze

The Squeeze option ensures the point does not reside in an intersection or too close to the end of a street. When Squeeze is enabled, both street and end points are moved closer to the center of the segment by 50 feet. By default, the Squeeze option is enabled. You can disable the option if desired.

Use the following to enable the Squeeze option:

Batch Processing

Use the Latitude/Longitude Squeeze field in the LLOUT parameter card.

Integrator Series API

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

Callable Functions

Use MCA-LL-SQUEEZE-OPT in the Matcher Control Area prior to Calling the GTMATCH program.
