The optional Point Of Interest (POI) Index file (poi.gsi) included with the Master Location Data and HERE Point Addresses datasets provides expanded support in alias name matching.

To enable POI matching:

  1. Add the MLD or HERE Point Addresses data as a Database Resource.
  2. Ensure Building Search on Address Line is checked. The POI Index file will automatically be searched when this option is enabled and a firm, building or POI name is specified in the mainAddress input field.
  3. If an alias match is made to the POI Index file, the IsStreetAlias output field, or, in the case of a centerline match, CenterlineIsAlias field, returns A11. To enable the return of these fields, select the Segment and Centerline Return Values options.
