World Geocoder does not return Region and Subregion in case of a PointAddress

Question asked by kawsalee on Sep 4, 2014



I'm using the world geocoding service. There are a few things I'm wondering.


When typing an address: streetname housenumber, city I get some results.

The first result returns a correct Match_addr with the correct postalcode.

It is of the address type "PointAddress".

This result does not contain a region or subregion, which I need for my application.


The second result returns a "StreetAddress" which contains a region and subregion, but the postalcode is incorrect.


So my question:

Why is the esri geocoding service not returning the region and subregion if the address type is "PointAddress"?


Thanks in advance
