Hi,
in ArcGIS 9.3.1 there have been german adress locators an enhanced functionality (see http://support.esri.de/index_23158.HTML). Has anybody experience/docoumentation about these locators. I get an error in Version 9.3.1 while puting in my reference data (see attachment). Any ideas about this?

Further more I would like to try the new Engine of ArcGIS 10 with german address data. Is it possible to use the former functionality (German Phonetic etc.) of 9.3.1. If so, how can I do this. Just copy the locators (if so, which files/dirs in detail)? I tried and got the "error 000042 Error while executing CreatAdressLocator. Adresslocator could not be created". Is there a possibility to get more detailed information on the error (e.g. logfile).

Looking forword for any ideas ...(templates, links)  

Thanks,

Christoph

Hi,

still looking for support on this topic.

ESRI Germany released german locator styles on the release of ArcGIS 10.0 last year.

Now we are working on release 10.1 and the styles do not work anymore.

Is there a possibility to have a good documentation on locator styles like this:
http://resources.arcgis.com/gallery/file/geocoding/details?entryID=51EE55F8-1422-2418-7F8B-FD82DE958...
but on release 10.1. Or at least an upgrade of the documentation with the main changes?

I heard, that esri-germany will not upgrade the german locators-styles, but so the
geocoding engine is useless for us, because it makes no sense to geocode german streets
with american locatorstyles ...

Probably there is somebody who made an address-locator-style with german spelling rules?
Probably we are the only customer who uses the geocoding engine of ESRI out of the United States? 😉


Best regards from Berlin,

Christoph
