Custom Preferences

Canada supports the following custom preferences and output fields.
Preference Description
FORCELDUDEF Last 3 digits of the postal code defined the Local Delivery Unit.
Note: Supported only in forward geocoding.
You can locate this option on the Global Geocode window:

Matching > Force LDU match checkbox.

Calculate Centerline Projection of Point Computes the closest point on the street from the parcel point. Default = disabled. Use this with Centerline Offset to set a new point along the centerline that may be more appropriate for some use cases, such as routing where you want the geocoded point closer to the edge of the parcel.
Note: This feature requires that a point-level geocoding dataset is installed.
Note: The result code for centerline matches is SC.
Centerline offset Centerline matching is used with point-level matching to tie a point-level geocode with its parent street segment. This functionality is useful for routing applications.

The centerline offset specifies the distance to move the point from the street centerline toward the parcel point. Default = 0 meters.

You can select either Feet or Meters for your unit of measurement.

Note: Centerline matching requires that a point-level geocoding dataset is installed.
Note: Supported only in forward geocoding.
Calculate Centerline Projection of Point Computes the closest point on the street from the parcel point. Default = disabled.
Note: This feature requires that a point-level geocoding dataset is installed.
USE_CENTERLINE_OFFSET When set to true, calculates the centerline offset for point addresses. Default = false. Supported only in forward geocoding.
Note: The centerline feature requires that you have a point-level geocoding dataset installed.
A centerline point match is indicated by a result code beginning with SC.
CENTERLINE_OFFSET When USE_CENTERLINE_OFFSET is enabled, this specifies the distance to offset the point from centerline. Default = 0. Supported in forward geocoding only.
CENTERLINE_OFFSET_UNIT When USE_CENTERLINE_OFFSET is enabled, this specifies the unit type for the centerline offset. Valid values = feet, meters. Default = meters. Supported only in forward geocoding.
