Geocode Data Type

Geocode Data Type

Determines how the Address Validator transformation calculates geocode data for an address. Geocodes are latitude and longitude coordinates.
The geocoding results that the transformation returns depend on the geocoding reference data that you install. For information about geocoding reference data, contact Informatica.
Select one of the following geocode options:
Arrival point
Returns the latitude and longitude coordinates of the entrance to a building or parcel of land. Default option.
You can select the arrival point option for addresses in the following countries:
Australia, Austria, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States.
If you specify arrival point geocodes and the Address Validator transformation cannot return the geocodes for an address, the transformation returns interpolated geocodes.
Returns the estimated latitude and longitude coordinates of the entrance to the building or parcel of land. An estimated geocode is also called an interpolated geocode.
The Address Validator transformation uses the nearest available geocodes in the reference data to estimate the geocodes for the address.
Informatica no longer issues reference data for parcel centroid or rooftop geocoding.

Parameter Usage

You can use a parameter to specify the geocode type. Enter ARRIVAL_POINT or NONE. To return the standard geocodes, enter NONE.
Enter the parameter value in uppercase.
