                throws IOException,
                       AutomationException
Geocodes a table of addresses.

Description

The MatchTable method geocodes a table of addresses to a feature class.

Remarks

Before you geocode a table of addresses, you must first create the feature class that will contain the geocoded features. In addition to having an ObjectID and the match fields created by the locator, you can also specify fields from the address table to copy to the geocoded feature class. When you geocode a table of addresses using ArcGIS Desktop, the output feature class contains two copies of the address fields from the address table. One copy is a static copy that contains the original values of the address components from the address table. The second copy is an editable copy that you can use to modify the address when rematching the geocoded feature class. The names of the latter set of address fields are prefixed with "ARC_". In general, it is a good idea to follow this pattern when programatically geocoding a table of addresses, since the locator that you attach to the geocoded feature class will then only need to refer to the geocoded feature class itself (and not the original address table) in order to be able to rematch the addresses in the geocoded feature class.

The addressFieldNames parameter is used to specify the names of the fields in the addressTable that contain address information. The field names are contained in a comma-delimited string, in the order required by the address locator. You can get the set of address fields for the geocoding service using IAddressInputs::AddressFields. Use the IField::Required property to determine which address fields are required by the address locator. You must specify the names of the required fields in the address table. If your address table does not contain an optional address field, then do not specify a name in the this property.

The WhereClause parameter is used to restrict which addresses in the table are geocoded using a query.

The outputFeatureClass parameter is the feature class which will contain the geocoded addresses. This feature class must have an ObjectID field, and the match fields for the address locator. Use the MatchFields property to get the match fields for the address locator. In addition to the fields returned from MatchFields property, the result feature class also contains the Match_type field indicating how an adddress was matched. The field may contain the following values assigned by IAddressGeocoding::MatchTable or IAddressUI::RematchTable

If you want to copy any additional fields from the address table, or create new fields in the feature class, you must also add them to the feature class before geocoding the table.

The outputFieldNames parameter is a string containing a comma-delimited list of the names of the match fields in the feature class. The names of the fields must be specified in the same order as defined by the address locator. Use the MatchFields property to get the match fields for the address locator.

The fieldsToCopy parameter allows you to copy values from fields in the address table to the feature class. To copy a field, add a property to the PropertySet with the name of the destination field in the feature class, and with a value of the name of the field in the address table. You must add the the field to the feature class when you create it in order to copy values from the address table.

The CancelTracker parameter allows you to optionally display the progress while the geocoding service geocodes the table of addresses.

In order to be able to rematch a geocoded feature class, you must attach a locator to the geocoded feature class.

Minimum match score setting.

Remarks

The MinimumMatchScore property specifies how well addresses have to match their most likely candidate in the reference data in order to be considered matched. A perfect match yields a score of 100. A match score between 75 and 100 can generally be considered a good match, depending upon the quality of your reference and address data. An address with no candidates with scores euqal to or greater than the minimum match score will not be matched.

The MinimumMatchScore property can have values between 0 and 100. If your application demands that addresses be located with a high level of confidence, you should specify a high value. If you want to maximize the number of addresses that can be matched and don’t mind if some addresses are potentially matched incorrectly, you can use a lower value.

                                  AutomationException
Spelling sensitivity setting.

Remarks

The SpellingSensitivity property controls how much variation the locator will allow when it searches for likely candidates in the reference data. A low value for spelling sensitivity will allow “Mane”, “Maine”, and “Man” to be treated as match candidates for “Main”. A higher value will restrict candidates to exact matches. The spelling sensitivity does not affect the match score of each candidate; it only controls how many candidates the locator considers. The locator then computes the match score of each candidate and ranks the candidates by score.

The SpellingSensitivity property can have values between 0 and 100. If you are sure that your addresses are spelled correctly, you can specify a higher value for the SpellingSensitivity. However, if you think that your addresses may contain spelling errors, then you should specify a lower value.

getEndOffset

public int getEndOffset()
                 throws IOException,
                        AutomationException
End offset percentage.

Remarks

Locators that use polyline features as reference data interpolate positions along reference data features for geocoded addresses. In order to prevent features that are located at the end of a reference data feature from falling on top of other features (for example, a cross street), the locator can apply a “squeeze factor”, or end offset, to the location of a geocoded address.

The EndOffset property specifies by what amount to offset geocoded locations from the end of reference data features, and is expressed as a percentage of the length of the reference feature, between 0 percent and 50 percent. An EndOffset value of 0 will not offset features from the end of the reference feature. An EndOffset value of 50 percent will locate all geocoded addresses at the middle of the reference feature.

Remarks

Some locators support geocoding addresses to a particular side of a street. For those locators, you can specify a side offset using the SideOffset property, which specifies how far from the correct side of the street geocoded addresses should be offset.

                                        AutomationException
Connector strings used to designate intersections.

Remarks

The IntersectionConnectors property lets you specify strings that are used to delimit intersection addresses. Some address locators can geocode intersection addresses such as "New York St. & W. Redlands Blvd.". This property is a string containing all of the strings that can be used to delimit intersections (such as "&", "AND", or "AT"). Each intersection connector is separated by a space in this string.

isUseRelativePaths

public boolean isUseRelativePaths()
                           throws IOException,
                                  AutomationException
Indicates if the paths to the reference data should be stored relative to the locator.

Remarks

The UseRelativePaths property indicates if the locator stores paths to reference data sources as relative path names. Storing paths to reference data sources as relative paths names allows users to copy a locator and its reference data between folders in ArcCatalog without invalidating the locator. It also allows users to access the same locator from a shared network directory.
