Source data must conform to the following requirements:

  • The source file must be a MapInfo Tab (Native or NativeX).
  • The data’s source records should contain either point geometries or line geometries (segmented data). In case latitude and longitude are available in tabular format (separate columns) in the tab file, you will need to generate geometries using these columns.
  • The data has to be in a schema that contains all required fields, which are mapped during the dataset building process. If a value of a required field is empty for a particular record, then that record will not be imported into the dataset.
  • The search area code (SAC) field should preferably be mapped to the postcode, as this serves the most logical grouping for most of the cases – not required for United States, Germany and Canada.
  • Spectrum 2019.1 or higher is required and the vintage of the SPD bundles must be OCT2019 or later.
  • For Typeahead support, Spectrum 2020.1 or higher is required and the vintage of the SPD bundles must be OCT2020 or later.
