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.

Tool Configuration

  1. 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.
  2. On the Options tab, in Select output fields, select the data to include in the geocoded (G) output.
  3. 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.
