Scenario: Use an address or point of interest to find one or more closest addresses or points of interest. In addition, the Geocoder transform outputs latitude and longitude information for both the input reference point and the matching output results.

The following sections describe the required and optional input fields and available output fields to obtain either single-record or multiple-record results for this scenario. We also provide examples with sample data.

Required input fields
For required input fields, at least one input field in each category must be mapped.

Available output fields

All output fields are optional.
For a single-record result, the output fields are the results for the spatial search.
For multiple-record results, the output fields in the Assignment Level and Latitude/Longitude categories are the results for the reference address assignment. Output fields in the Results category are the results for the spatial search.
For multiple-record results, the number of output records is determined by the Max_Records input field (if populated), or the Default Max Records option
