WEGeocoder_71x71.png European Geocoder

The European Geocoder tool produces a record-for-record geocode result for European addresses including formatted address fields from TomTom, the level of geography that determined the match, lat/long coordinates, and a spatial object. In addition, it produces a summary output that provides a count of records per geolevel accompanied by detailed geolevel descriptions.

Macro Tool

This tool is a macro that requires a separate data install and license. To use this tool, contact your Account Executive.

Use the European Geocoder tool to assign address data to a spatial object so that you can pinpoint locations, display them on a map, and carry out geography-based analyses.

Configure the Tool

Input Tab

  1. Use the dropdowns to specify the following fields of the incoming data stream:

    • Address or Street Name

    • House Number (Optional)

    • District

    • City

    • State

    • Postal Code

  2. Select Multiple address fields or a Single address field. Only one field per country is selectable at a time.

  3. Preserve input fields: When checked, the original field names specified on the Input tab will be output from the tool. Left unchecked, the specified fields will be renamed to: Address, City, State, and ZIP.

Geocoder Options

  1. Select Output Fields: Check the fields to include in the Geocoded (G) output. Output fields are described in detail below.

  2. GeoLevel Match Summary: Specify how records should be sorted in the Summary (S) output. Choices are...

    • Sort by Accuracy (best-worst): The 13 Geolevels are sorted by their accuracy with the most accurate GeoLevel at the top.

    • Sort by Match Count (max-min): The 13 Geolevels are sorted by how many input records matched to each GeoLevel with the maximum number at the top.

Output Details

There are 2 outputs from this tool:

  • G output anchor: This outputs the geocoded results. The original input data is output if Preserve input fields was selected. Any fields that were selected as output fields in the Options tab are included in the results.

  • S anchor: A data summary streams out of this anchor. The data stream includes 2 fields: Match type and Count, which indicate the accuracy of the geocoding match and the number of results for each match type.
