I want to do address geocoding in the area with a messy address structure. Is it possible?
Can you provide a little more information? What area are you looking to do geocoding in? Do you have a typical address structure? If so, what does it look like. In general you will save yourself a lot of time and trouble by standardizing your addresses prior to geocoding. It is possible to rematch address after you geocode or to place points manually inside of the geocoding window. How much of this you will have to do depends on the data you have to start with.
Thank you for your response .
I will geocode a city located in Indonesia. Fyi, standard used in Indonesia is still diverse, especially for rural and urban areas, they are very diference. For urban areas, the size of each parcel was not uniform and there are address that are not in order. So, should I geocode manually?
Do you have the parcels in a feature class format? If so you should be good to go if they have some sort of address field you can match to.
You can can create a locator based on any type of geometry/feature class. The data you are matching ( a table of addresses for example) needs to have the address in the same basic format as what you are matching to.
Have you tried using the ArcGIS Online World geocoding service? You can try it interactively here:
It can also be used with ArcMap for interactive and batch geocoding although batch geocoding requires ArcGIS Online credits.
