Geocoding Issues with Cross streets RRS feed

  • Question

  • "and", "&" do not work in the AddressLine when uploading locations when the AddressLine cannot be found, even when I supply my own Latitude and Longitude. Documentation says it will not try to geocode but it is definitely not working. If I send in coordinates AND AddressLine is can be resolved, then its fine.

    Example CSV:

    How does "1" and "3" work, but not "4"?

  • If you are uploading addresses via the services for the Bing Spatial Data Services be sure to use version 2 of the service as that makes use of the Bing Maps REST services for geocoding. The Bing Maps REST services is able to geocode all these addresses as long as they are properly encoded when geocoded (i.e. & = %26 in the request URL). If you are uploading via the user interface in the Bing Maps portal, it still uses version 1 of the batch geocoder. If you have a Bing Maps license you can also contact the Bing Maps Enterprise support team to help you with your issue.

  • I see...

    I have an enterprise license and I'm using it via the user interface. I guess we're just stuck for now, I decided to just replace them with a "/" which seems to work. The inconsistency is what gets me, hard to explain this to the end user. Oh well, thanks Ricky!
