Custom Locator Style: Custom Zone and Building Names

Question asked by lostpenan on Sep 22, 2018



I am building a custom address locator style for Malaysia in 10.6, using the US Address style as the base for customisation.


Here are some info to provide context to my problem.


I am using HERE NavStreets as the reference data. NavStreets data support both point address and dual ranges addresses.


The typical Malaysian house address consists of the following components:


No. 2 Jalan Eaton 5 Kuala Lumpur City Centre 50450 Kuala Lumpur




Prefix to denote a house number HouseStreet PrefixStreet NameLocalityPostcodeDistrict
No.2JalanEaton 5Kuala Lumpur City Centre 50450Kuala Lumpur



The format of my customer addresses to be geocoded contains the following fields:


where ZONE is an internal zoning system used by the company for aggregating customers. Example of a ZONE is 25003.

ADDRESS is a single field address with all components separated by space.





I have two questions:

1. So far I have succeeded in customising the address style to batch geocode using the ADDRESS and POSTCODE fields. However, I have failed to create the locator with the custom ZONE field. Where did I go wrong with the mapping schema? See attachment for the locator style I have created.


2. For apartments and POIs, where should I customise in the locator style to score on building names? Example of an apartment address below:


Block A10-3-21 Eaton Heights Jalan Eaton 5 Kuala Lumpur City Centre 50450 Kuala Lumpur




Unit Building NameStreet PrefixStreet NameLocalityPostcodeDistrict
Block A10-3-21 Eaton HeightsJalanEaton 5Kuala Lumpur City Centre 50450Kuala Lumpur



Thanks All!
