Where can I download address locator styles? I'd like to try a few different address locator styles but cannot find them.
They are part of the ArcGIS install. See this link for creating a locato and it will walk you through step by step:
Creating an address locator—Help | ArcGIS Desktop
Here is a link:
Commonly used address locator styles—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
I have been to that page but where do I download the style? Is it a file? Is it already somewhere within the ArcGIS install files (bin)? I have never used geocoding.
Ah, ok, I see it. thanks very much!
I'd like to geocode a voter registration file. Do I have enough info to create a reference file and address locator? I have a voter registration file with names and addresses and I have a tax parcel file (Malta_rps). Please see attached.
What do I use as a Primary Table, the Voter file or the parcel file?
I've tried using US Address - Single House.
There are other people that are much more experts on this than me, I use a dual range address locator because my address point data has all the necessary data in that one featureclass I also have a parcel polygon fall back locator that is one feature class as well. I don't have much experience building a locator from two separate files. I would say as long as you have a common field that you can join the two datasets on then you might be OK. There is a lot that goes into choosing the right locator for your data and many time a lot of data manipulation / cleanup that has to happen first.
Ok. I'm trying it. we'll see how it goes.
Thanks very much.
Does your Parcel Polygon locator return a polygon or a point?
It returns a Polygon.
