Table 1. Custom Preferences
Preference Description
Use Address Point Interpolation When set to true, enables address point interpolation. Default = false. Supported only in forward geocoding.
Note: The address point interpolation feature requires that you have a point-level geocoding dataset installed.
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 Offsetis enabled, this specifies the distance to offset the point from centerline. Default = 0. Supported in forward geocoding only.
Centerline Offset Units 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.
FIND_MATCH_CODE_EXTENDED When set to true, enables the return of additional address match information. Most notably, this is used to indicate whether or not an exact match was made to the input unit number. An address match is still returned if there is not an exact match to the input unit number, but the match is to the main building address without units. This extended match code digit will also provide information about any changes in the house number, unit number and unit type fields. In addition, it can indicate whether there was address information that was ignored. Default = true. For more information, see Extended Match Codes.
Note: Supported only in forward geocoding.
