Is this even possible? I've been reading the forums for several days now and no one has an answer. I want to create an intersection locator based on street centerline data. Thought using the Dual Range style would be best because my centerline data included all the necessary fields but no go.
Also have intersection point data that included individual street names. The only way that I've read (so far) to make this work is to concatenate the street name field at each intersection for each point so that your table data will read "50TH & FRANCE", and then would need another point at the same location with attribute reading "FRANCE & 50TH". So for a 4 way intersection you would need 2 points in order to locate the intersection properly. Obviously I'm not going to do that as it would take me 6 months.
ARE THERE ANY ANSWERS OUT THERE? I FEEL LIKE THIS SHOULD NOT BE SO DAMN COMPLICATED!
after your create your dual range address locator, make sure to right click your locator in ArcCatalog ->Properties -> Geocoding options
There set "Match without house number" to "Yes" and set "Match with no zones" to "Yes".
Now open a fresh MXD, if you have that locator already in use, remove it and then re-add it. If it is not in your list of locators just add it and use it. Now you should be able to find intersections.
This is great for navigation, but I can't find the intersection of I-95 and I-64 because they don't actually intersect in the data. But it is common to refer to such interchanges and say "go to 95 and 64 and bear right" for example. So my locator can't find it, but my users will be asked to go there frequently.
Can you give me some tips on how to generate the data for the point locator, please? I've seen the bit about putting street1 @ street2 in a single field, but that's giving me some pause because of the complexity of handling all the combinations required. Thanks for the reply!
