How take account County in GeoCoding RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

     I am trying to geocode a location using By Address method with following parameters

    adminDistrict = NY  

    Locality= Woodbury

    with following url 

    http://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Locations?BINGKEY&adminDistrict=NY&locality=Woodbury

    it returns me 2 address as there are 2 counites in New York which have city name woodbury. One is Orange County and other is Nassue County. 

    I found out that in response of bing service county name is mentioned in adminDistrict2 , so I thought to add it in url so that I can get one result from the desired county. So I updated the above mentioned url with following one

    http://dev.virtualearth.net/REST/v1/Locations?key=BINGKEY&adminDistrict=NY&adminDistrict2=Nassau&locality=Woodbury

    Below are the parameters of new url

    adminDistrict = NY  

    adminDistrict2=Nassau

    Locality= Woodbury

    I am still getting 2 result. Instead of only one from Nassau county.  It seems Bing service is not taking account the Count/adminDistrict2 . is that right ?

    So, my question is , Am i doing it the wrong way ? or there is not way to include the adminDistrict2 in request ?

    The weird thing is that both result from bing service have the matchCodes= Ambigous, ( for both Orange and Nassau County)

    As I didn't see the adminDistrict2 in the parameters list provided at the Find a Location By Address page.
