The Geocoder directories are designed specifically for use with the Geocoder transform. You must install the directories and point to them in the Reference Path.  Except for the U.S. 3.x directory, all the Geocoder directories have only one file from one vendor for one country. Otherwise, the system will have unpredictable behavior.

 A quarterly vendor-specific directory update is available on the SAP Help Portal and is also included in each directory package. The directory update provides instructions for installing the directories and information about the directory contents. It describes the package names, files names, and the supported countries, directory format, geocoding mode, centroid level, and census information. It also lists the available POI types supported by the vendor.

Also, the detail information of the directory can be found in the letter.

POI List by Vendor

NavTeq (Acquired by Nokia) and TomTom can be found in the directory letter.

Centroid

The centroid means the center point latitude/longitude of a given address components. This value is given by our vendor. For more detail about different countries, you can reference the letter released together with the directory.

Postcode Centroid level

If an address has a postcode, you receive coordinates in the appropriate postcode area. The Geocoder transform has Postcode Full (PF), Postcode2 Partial (P2P) and Postcode1 (P1) assignment levels, depending on the available country data.

Locality Centroid level

If an address has a locality, you receive coordinates in the appropriate locality area. The Geocoder transform has Locality1 (L1), Locality2 (L2), Locality3 (L3) and Locality4 (L4) assignment levels, depending on the available country data.
