Latitude and longitude

On output from the Geocoder transform, you will have latitude and longitude data. Latitude and longitude are denoted on output by decimal degrees, for example, 12.12345. Latitude (0-90 degrees north or south of the equator) shows a negative sign in front of the output number when the location is south of the equator. Longitude (0-180 degrees east or west of Greenwich Meridian in London, England) shows a negative sign in front of the output number when the location is within 180 degrees west of Greenwich.

Assignment level

You can understand the accuracy of the assignment based on the Assignment_Level output field. The return code of PRE means that you have the finest depth of assignment available to the exact location. The second finest depth of assignment is a return code of PRI, which is the primary address range, or house number. The most general output level is either P1 (Postcode level) or L1 (Locality level), depending on the option you chose in the Best Assignment Level option.

Multiple results

For multiple-record results, the Result_List output field is output as XML which can contain the following output, depending on the available data.

Standardize address information

The geocoding data provided by vendors is not standardized. To standardize the address data that is output by the Geocoder transform, you can insert a Global Address Cleanse or USA Regulatory Address Cleanse transform in the data flow after the Geocoder transform. If you have set up the Geocoder transform to output multiple records, the address information in the XML output string must first be unnested before it can be cleansed.
