Thank you. It took some reading to figure out how to get the reverse geocoding to work with Portal 106 due to an error or bug. But I found this workaround by Johnathan Hosthorpe and it's working.
The geosearch does support geocoding function. You could type the house number and street information to search the address.
Starting at Survey123 3.0, geopoint questions include geosearch functionality, allowing users to search for an address or point of interest and have the map zoom to and place the geopoint marker at this location.
Or you want to populate the House Number and Street fields info into geosearch?
Hello Shwu-jing Jeng,
I have the same question as Jordan Miller. I want to populate an address field into the geosearch rather than having to do reversegeocoding from a point into a field.
The points that I'm trying to generate are quite precise and the properties provided from the reverse geocode are not what I want them to be.
Please see this post regarding the question you are asking.
We also have 'Calculate Location from CSV' Sample in Survey123 Connect which you can try.
A great question would be are any of these requests placed on as a Feature Enhancement? Not being able to adjust the geopoint question or work with the "geosearch" window to move the point based upon previous input fields seems a missed opportunity.
In my scenario, we are using Web Form of Survey123, so users would not necessarily have GPS or location enable, nor would they be at the location when they answer the questions. We don't even want to have the geopoint question appear with the map. I just want the person to input the address and then update behind the scenes the geopoint centroid, so it doesn't end up of the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and so I don't have to geocode them after the fact. Perhaps I'm missing something but all i want Survey123 to do is geocode the XY location based upon the input address.
Is it possible to pull the address from the geocode back to the fields similar to the youtube video below where he searches for an address on the geopoint map and it populates fields?
The demo in the YouTube video is "Reverse Geocode" function, which we do provide a sample of survey form available in Survey123 Connect.
Open Survey123 Connect>New Survey>Click Samples and search "Reverse Geocode."
