The World Geocoding service REST interface for reverse geocoding has a parameter named "returnIntersection". When set to "true" it is supposed to cause the service to return the closest intersection instead of the closest address. It does not appear to do anything.

 

The requests

http://geocode.arcgis.com/arcgis/rest/services/World/GeocodeServer/reverseGeocode?f=json&location=-120.6976456245268,38.2048532311486&returnIntersection=true

and

http://geocode.arcgis.com/arcgis/rest/services/World/GeocodeServer/reverseGeocode?f=json&location=-120.6976456245268,38.…

return the same thing, even though the point listed is on an intersection and quite far away from the address that gets returned.

 

Am I missing something or is it just broken?
