Is it possible to set address locator properties, like minimum match score, before creating the address locator with arcpy? I'm modifying them after creation in the *loc.xml file.
Brandon, it doesn't look like it. Check this link with similar discussion.
the best way to find materials is to search with arcpy in it, for instance arcpy address locator
will get you in the ball park
I'm confused by this response - the link does not lead to anything specifically to do with arcpy, rather a tool, which like any tool can be called via arcpy, but as far as I can tell it does not have anything to do with setting locator properties.
Simple...to direct to the help files to see what is exposed within arcpy, which in this case is simply the access to the tools which would then lead one to see whether anything else can be found by examining the arcpy tree itself. Most people don't know about simply access to tools through arcpy.
to access arcpy functions
to access arcpy classes
Then there are additional functions and classes within each of the registered extensions
Thanks for the reply. I looked but didn't find too much related to properties. I will do as you suggest and search using arcpy.
I had seen this as I was searching for similar questions and hoped someone might have a new idea. I was able to handle the property modifications as part of my script but still like the idea of setting them from the start. Thanks for taking the time to look around.
You can edit locator properties after creation by editing (in code if scripting) the.loc file component of a locator, see here:
