Maybe (hopefully) simple but is there a way to setup a Locator to geocode a dead-end intersection? So if the input string was "Main St & Dead End" it would geocode the Main St line segment with no intersecting street? I understand this could end in many "ties" and I'm okay with that.

Thanks,

Hi Chris,

Disconnected intersections are now supported by the ArcGIS Online World Geocoding Service:

Dead-end intersection

REST request:

http://geocode.arcgis.com/arcgis/rest/services/World/GeocodeServer/findAddressCandidates?SingleLine=... 

You can find more details in the developer documentation:

findAddressCandidates—ArcGIS REST API: World Geocoding Service | ArcGIS for Developers
