Hi All, I geocoded a dataset with around 500,000 addresses on my computer, and my team member validated the geocoding results using the same address locator and geocoding options on her computer. A small number of the addresses (0.4% among all addresses) in the dataset have unmatched X and Y coordinates from the two separate runs. Most of the unmatched geocoded X and Y coordinates are several hundred feet apart or even closer. The address locator that we use comes from the ESRI StreetMap Premium. Does anybody have an idea about why this happened? Thanks!
