What geocoding option should be used to get the most accurate results?

MapMarker will automatically return the most accurate geocode available, so there is no option that needs to be set.

What is DPV seed violation?

DPV processing was terminated due to the detection of what is determined to be an artificially created address. No address beyond this point has been DPV validated. In accordance with the License Agreement between USPS and Precisely, DPV shall be used to validate legitimately obtained addresses only, and shall not be used for the purpose of artificially creating address lists.

Continuing use of DPV requires compliance with all terms of the License Agreement.

What will happen in case of DPV seed violation?

In case of seed exception none of the DPV related output fields will be displayed. Only the geocoded results will be returned along with geocode deductions.

Will I know if there is DPV seed violation at any record?

You will not be informed of the record which generated the seed exception. It will be shared with concerned authorities.

What is Match Score and how does it work?

Match Score lets you identify whether an address is a perfect match or questionable with a 1-100 score. It is used to better indicate what parts of an address were changed to make the match. It can be a powerful method in evaluating your geocoding results.

A value of 100 means that the input address is nearly identical to the geocoded address. A value of 0 means that the parsed input address may be completely changed in order to obtain a geocoded address.

You have an option to select a Match Score from Geocoding Options page with below mentioned possible values:

  • 50 or less: Match score between 0 and 50.
  • 80 or less: Match score between 0 and 80.
  • 100 or less: Match score between 0 and 100.
