Wildcard address search with REST service RRS feed

  • You will never get a street this way. When you pass in just a street number there are likely hundreds of addresses with the same number so the geocoder will not even bother offering any of those possibilities as it's to imprecise. At a minimum you should pass in the incorrectly spelt street address so Bing Maps can try and correct it.

  • Ya, I realize that. I was just hoping there was some wildcard like '8050%' and it would return the first [maxResults] that it found. We'll just make sure our customers know they have to attempt to include the street name.
