Hey ALL,

i created a custom locator in ArcGIS 10.3 based on the General.lot.xml. In this XML File I added serveral AliasNames for Cities, States, etc. I published this service as a geocoding service with Suggestions enabled.

Well, I can actually find everything with the right name from the attributtable. For example for New York, if I type in "Ne" it will automatically find New York. But I cant find the AliasName "NY". This is only possible by using the "FindAdressCanditates" instead of Suggest.

So I tried almost erverything. Even in the Esri White Paper, inculding the tutorial it is not working.

So do you have any " Suggestions"

regards,

Alex

The question was solved. After contacting Esri, they told me the "Enable suggestion" does not work with Alias Names. So I solved it in a different way. Edit the *.LOT.XML and paste follwing sheme:

<alias_def>

<alt>Wohnheim Akademische Burse</alt>

<alt>Wohn</alt>

<alt>Wohnh</alt>

<alt>Wohnhe</alt>

<alt>Wohnhei</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim </alt>

<alt>Wohnheim A</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Ak</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Aka</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akad</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akade</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akadem</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akademi</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akademis</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akademisc</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akademisch</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akademische</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akademische </alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akademische B</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akademische Bu</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akademische Bur</alt>

<alt>Wohnheim Akademische Burs</alt>

<alt>Studentenwerk</alt>

<alt>Stud</alt>

<alt>Stude</alt>

<alt>Studen</alt>

<alt>Student</alt>

<alt>Studente</alt>

<alt>Studenten</alt>

You can handle this with python.
