Adress Locator - German Adresses - Problem with House Number Field

Dear Community,


i have a feature layer where each point represents the centre of a building (house coordinates). Within the attribute table i have further information regarding the exact adress of each point (example below):


OIDRechtswertHochwertStrasse (Street)Hausnummer (House Number)Zusatz (Extra)Ort (City)Postleitzahl (Postal Code)


Based on this dataset i want to create (or lets say i tried to create) an adress locator within ArcCatalog using the house coordinate layer as reference and i want to publish it later as my own geocoding service within AGO.




Unfortunately, there is no adress locator style which is able to recognize the field: House Number. Consequentely i am able to locate the City, Postal Code and Street but the Adress matches with the wrong house number. If i try to use the pre-defined Adress Locator Style : "Single House" the geocoding fails at all, even if i define the House Number field as required.


Does anyone know if there is an pre-defined adress locator for germany? The adress information i have are provided from a governmental institution, so i don´t want to re-organiz these data.


I also do not want to add any extra fields or using an online geocoding service. I am using ArcMap 10.2.2.


Maybe someone can help me. I have the feeling ESRI does not want ppl within Germany to use there own geolocation service because the problem seems to be an issue for many years now.


Thanks in advice,
