March 30, 2017 – Kleber subscribers who currently use DataTools.Enhance.Address.Geocoding.AcxiomStandard.Append method will notice changes occurring to his method from Thursday April 6th 2017.
WHAT ARE THE CHANGES?
From the 6th April the above method will be retired – HOWEVER any code that uses this method will be automatically redirected to the new DataTools.Enhance.Address.Geocoding.Gnaf.Au.Append method that uses the industry standard G-NAF information. This means that from the 6th April the geocode returned for an address will be slightly different and the output Field of ‘GeocodeResultLevels’ will return different values.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?
If you DO NOT use the codes in the output field of ‘GeocodeResultLevel’ – NO change will be required to your code.
As mentioned above your current method will automatically be redirected to the new DataTools G-NAF method. The ONLY difference is that the geocode returned for an address will now be for the middle of the property not for the street outside the property.
If your code has rules based on the information provided in the output Field of ‘GeocodeResultLevel’ – you will need to makes some changes.
For your information – the new codes returned in this output field will be:
- P = Premise or Building match
- S = Street level match
- L = Locality level match
CAN I TEST THIS BEFOREHAND?
Yes. From Thursday, 30th March 2017 the DEV environment for Kleber (http://kleber-devuat.datatoolscloud.net.au) will have the updated information available for testing. Here you will be able to check the automatic redirection and if necessary test the new GeocodeResultLevel output codes.
