Selecting a Geocoding Service

Scroll Prev Top Next More

Ultra Geocoder supports a number of geocoding services. Select the required service on the main panel, and then press the Settings button to set the parameters for that service.

 

The Geocoder Parameters dialog box will look something like this:

 

geocode_locationiq

 

The exact settings will vary. Some services require more than one license key or identifier.  Not all services require a Region Field mapping. Some geocoding services have a single 'Region' value, whilst others distinguish between 'State' and 'County'. Ultra Geocoder uses Region, so a mapping may have to be specified if the service distinguishes between State and County.

 

The following geocoders are currently supported:

 

 

Caliper Maptitude

 

Caliper Maptitude is a desktop GIS system, and should be installed locally. You will need the country pack for the required country, and have Maptitude's default geocoder set to this country.

 

Note: No further options are required. No map or workspace needs to be specified to use Maptitude's geocoder.

LocationIQ

 

LocationIQ is an online geocoding service that primarily uses OpenStreetMap data. A free trial license level is available.

 

Note: You will need to specify a mapping between the Region and either the State or County fields.

General Geocoding Notes

 

All of the online geocoders have query speed limits for all license levels. Ultra Geocoder will automatically adjust its query speed to work within these limits. Therefore you should expect Ultra Geocoder to initially start fast, then pause before continuing at an optimum speed.

 

Most of these services also have daily limits. If Ultra Geocoder recognizes it has hit a daily limit, it will stop processing with an error. You should either upgrade your license level or wait one day.
