Geocode Accuracy

    Question

  • Hello.  When I submit some addresses for Geocoding, their results are not very accurate.  The MatchCode is "good" and the Confidence is "High" but the return address is very different from the initial request.

    I believe the requested address is not valid and I was expecting a no match but instead, a completely different address is returned. 

    Is there a way to tighten the match criteria or perhaps I am not checking the correct return codes?

    Example:

    Requested:

    AddressLine=972 OXFORD ST.

    AdminDistrict=BC

    AdminDistrict2=

    CountryRegion=Canada

    District=null

    Locality=VANCOUVER

    PostalCode=V6E3V7

    Response:

    AddressLine=972 Gilford St

    AdminDistrict=BC

    AdminDistrict2=Greater Vancouver

    CountryRegion=Canada

    District=

    FormattedAddress=972 Gilford St, Vancouver, BC V6G 2N7, Canada

    Locality=Vancouver

    PostalCode=V6G 2N7
