Tech Tip:
Using the Locate by Address Tool

Locate by Address dialog boxMany of the databases you use in your work contain information on customers, prospects, businesses, facilities, and so on. One way you can use your data with Maptitude is to locate your data on a map by creating a new layer that contains a point for every record in your table. This is sometimes known as pin mapping or geocoding.

Maptitude offers six different commands for locating your data on a map. The first time you locate by address you should be able to locate most of your records using the normal settings. The Locate by Address command has other settings to help you deal with situations that you may encounter.  

You might need to use the Locate by Address command several times with different settings, or some of the other Locate commands, to deal with records that were not found. Maptitude provides many ways to deal with records that could not be located with the normal settings. Below are some situations and how to solve them, using the other settings or the other Locate commands. 

The following steps illustrate how to use the different settings available to locate your address data:

  1. Open a table of the records that you want to locate, or choose the working map layer that has unfound records.

  2. Choose Tools-Locate-Locate by Address.

  3. Choose whether to locate all records or a selection set filter (such as "Address Not Found") from the By Locating drop-down list.

  4. Choose from the various matching options below:

  • If you want to try different postal/ZIP Codes:
    Sometimes ZIP Codes have changed or there are mistakes in the data so you can click the Postal Codes tab and click the Use Postal Codes Near the One in the Postal Code Field radio button to try alternate postal codes. 

  • If you want to ignore, or there are missing, postal codes:
    You can supply a list of postal codes to try, or indicate the city and state whose ZIP/Postal Codes are to be tried. Choose None from the Postal Code drop-down list, click the Postal Codes tab, click the Use Postal Codes in this List or Use Postal Codes For radio buttons, and fill in the necessary information.  

  • If you want to change the rating for matching records:
    You can set the rating necessary to declare a match to be higher or lower than the normal setting. Click the Addresses tab and make a choice from the Matching Method drop-down list.  

  • If you want to choose when the match is uncertain:
    If there are several possible places to locate a record, you can review the list and make a choice. Click the Ask If Uncertain radio button, and Maptitude will display the Choose a Matching Record dialog box when a choice is necessary.

  • If you want to report how each record was matched:
    Maptitude can save the standardized version of the addresses and the results of the match in a report file. Click the Addresses tab, check Save Standardization Output, and type a file name.

  1. Click OK. If Maptitude displays the Save As dialog box, type a file name for the layer to store the new points, and click Save.  

Maptitude locates the records and displays a message summarizing the results. Maptitude also displays the locations in a point layer on a map, and creates a new selection set filter called "Address Not Found" for any records that could not be located. You can repeat the above steps by choosing a different method to locate additional addresses. 

If some addresses still were not found after trying all of the Locate by Address options, use one of the other Locate commands. You can locate your records manually By Pointing, By Postal Code, and By City.
