Package com.esri.arcgis.geoprocessing.tools.geocodingtools Description

Geocoding is the process of assigning a location, usually in the form of coordinate values, to an address by comparing the descriptive location elements in the address to those present in the reference material. Addresses come in many forms, ranging from the common address format of house number followed by the street name and succeeding information to other location descriptions such as postal zone or census tract. In essence, an address includes any type of information that distinguishes a place.

Many common tasks are related to the geocoding process. These include the creation, maintenance, and deletion of address locators, as well as the actual geocoding of addresses. The Geocoding toolbox contains tools to assist in accomplishing these tasks.
