Address is not recognized if ending with Rdg (ridge) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using the REST services (Location by Address) to get the coordinates of the address. If the address has Rdg (Ridge), the API does not return any results (or invalid results). Below are few examples.

    • 42646 Meadowlark Rdg, Murrieta, CA 92562
    • 1 Lambert Rdg, Cross River, NY 10518

    However if I replace Rdg with Ridge, it works fine. Our addresses go through the address scrub and Ridge is replaced with Rdg.

    Please advise.

    Regards,

    Venkat

  • The only other one i can think of is Rnch for Ranch. These limitations are not publically documented as they only recently came to our attention and we plan to add support for these.

  • Thanks Ricky.

    I update our program to replace "Rdg" with "Ridge".

    Are there other known issues with street suffix abbreviations (or a website where I can find the list of known issues with geocoding)?
