    As a federal agency, we need to track our work through thematic maps that reflect all of the entities we fund, i.e.,  the 50 states and the 6 USA territories and jurisdictions of DC, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and Northern Mariana Islands.

    We need these entities to be "recognized" as states by the geo-coder if they are included in a data table column of states. Presently, when we try to map our work, the maps fails due to the inclusion of territories in the list.

    I have been working with your Customer Service Team who tell me that the esri world map geo-coder does not recognize the territories (other than DC)  as states.  I do hope you will address this.  We had such high hopes for using your product when we got our licenses and now find that this lack precludes us from mapping our funding support.  I would imagine that other federal agencies who are your clients have the same dilemma.

    Thank you for you consideration.
