SOAP Geocode Service Japanese Bugs? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have encountered two apparent issues when using the geocoding service with the Japanese culture.

    1) Search queries of American cities result in duplicate values
    Call: geocodeServiceClient.Geocode
    Query: “Germantown”
    Confidence: Low
    Culture: ja-JP
    Results:
    city: Germantown, state: MD, country:United States, lat: 39.1822, lon: -77.27
    city: Germantown, state: MD, country:United States, lat: 39.1822, lon: -77.27
    city: Germantown, state: TN, country:United States, lat: 35.0965, lon: -89.8071
    city: Germantown, state: TN, country:United States, lat: 35.0965, lon: -89.8071
    city: Germantown, state: WI, country:United States, lat: 43.221, lon: -88.1186

    2) Search query does not return city name
    Call: geocodeServiceClient.Geocode
    Query: “ニューヨーク” New York in Japanese
    Confidence: Low
    Culture: ja-JP
    Results:
    city: , state: , country:アメリカ合衆国, lat: 40.7101, lon: -74.0066

  • The duplicated results is definitely a bug. I'll try to find out who can take care of this, but it's also easily handled with a bit of code.

     

    The second issue on the other hand, not sure what's going on there. That puts the point just off the shore of NY. If you use "New York" as the query with ja-JP, does it return the same response?
