Points databases contain data for locating the center of a parcel. These databases provides enhanced geocoding accuracy for internet mapping, property and casualty insurance, telecommunications, utilities, and others.

  • Master Location Data —This database provides the best available address point location for every mailable and deliverable address in the United States.
  • Centrus Points—This database contains the data necessary to locate the center of a parcel or building. It does not contain assessor's parcel number (APN) or elevation data.
  • Centrus Elevation—This database contains the same data as Centrus Points, plus elevation data.
  • Centrus Enhanced Points—This database contains the same data as Centrus Points, plus APN data.
  • Centrus Premium Points—This database contains the same data as Centrus Points, plus both APN and elevation data.
  • TomTom Points Database—The data in this database is provided by TomTom, a third-party provider of spatial data.
  • HERE Points—This database is provided by HERE, a third-party data provider. It contains data used to locate addresses at the center of the actual building footprint or parcel.
Note: To install Enterprise Geocoding databases on Windows Server you need administrator privileges.
  1. Make sure no applications are running.
  2. Download your Spectrum Product Database (SPD) format files from Precisely using the link provided in the Precisely communication or from data.precisely.com.
  3. The database is downloaded as a zip file. Unzip the database before proceeding with the installation.
  4. Run Setup.exe. The installation wizard guides you through the rest of the process.
    Note: You may install databases on a mapped drive, but performance will be affected since you will be accessing them on a network rather than accessing them locally.
  5. After you install the database files, use the Database Resource tool in the Management Console to define the database as a resource. For more information, see Spectrum Technology Platform Administration Guide.
