Reverse Geocoder Tool
The Reverse Geocoder tool coordinates latitude and longitude locations by querying and downloading data from the TomTom Reverse Geocoder API. The Reverse Geocoder tool produces a record-for-record reverse geocode result which includes formatted address fields and latitude/longitude coordinates. In addition, a summary output is produced that provides a count of records that were successfully and unsuccessfully reverse geocoded.
Use the Reverse Geocoder tool to assign address data to a spatial object or coordinates. This information can then be used to carry out further geography-based analysis.
This tool is a macro that requires a separate data install and license. To use this tool, contact your Account Executive.
- On the Input tab, choose how to input the coordinates.
- Single Field: Select the field that contains the latitude and longitude separated by a comma. For example: “-37.1345, 145.4342”
- Multiple Fields: Select the field that contains the latitude and select the field that contains the longitude.
- Spatial Object Field: Select the field that contains a spatial object data type.
- On the Options tab, in Select output fields, select the data to include in the geocoded (G) output.
- Select Preserve input fields to output the input data stream fields from the tool. If unchecked, the fields in the input data stream will be removed.
