Abstract:

Geocoding process for converting street addresses into spatial data that can be displayed as features on a map. Geocoding solution comprised of a geocoding engine and geocoding reference data.Geocoding engine -entity in the geocoding framework that drives the geocoding process. The engine maps to the reference data source, based on the geographic places e.g., country code listed in the non-spatial data file. Then, the engine determines the appropriate algorithms for standardizing the addresses and matching them to the reference data. Finally, the engine defines parameters for reading address data, matching address data to the reference data, and creating output. Geocoding reference data - data that a geocoding service uses to determine the geometric representations for locations.
