GeoCoder Object

Important Announcements

New Geocoder Object layout - January 22, 2024

We have changed our disc structure to simplify and modernize our API product. We have updated and remapped all of the latest properties and methods in the wrappers as well as streamlined our sample code. Our sample code and interfaces (wrapper) files have been moved to GitHub. Based on the current landscape of programming languages, we are supporting CSharp (.NET Core), C++, Java, and Python3.

All the sample code and wrappers can be found here

New Releases Web Service

Releases Web Service allows users to securely and efficiently download data files, object binaries, and other collateral files from Melissa Data. This service enables users to automate the process of updating their data by allowing them to script the download of specific files rather than downloading the entire zip file. Additionally, file versioning is provided, making it easier to download historical data if necessary.

For example, users are able to download the data files specific for Address Object plus the correct Windows object library and any wrappers required, without needing to download theentire zip archive. To ensure the security and integrity of the data being downloaded, Releases Web Service requires the user’s subscription license.

Documentation can be found here

New Melissa Updater CLI Application

Melissa also offers an open-source command-line interface (CLI) for Windows and Ubuntu, available here. The CLI simplifies the update process by providing a simple interface to consume the Releases web service. Instead of scheduling a custom process, you can schedule simplified console commands

New Geocoder Object-Downloader Script

New Geocoder Object-Downloader Script has been made to download the Geocoder Object files that you need without downloading the entire zip file.

Downloader scripts can be found here

or you could visit our wiki page for more detailed information http://wiki.melissadata.com/index.php?title=GeoCoder_Object

  • Functionality changes

    • We have a new input property of MAK (Melissa Address Key). This value is returned by our other address products such as address object and Personator.

    • We have improved the precision of our census values (such as census tract and block) returned by the service. By leveraging the information in the new data file, we can be more precise with the exact census values around county and city borders

    • The standard way of setting the input for GeoCoder is this (in this order):

      • Set MAK input
      • Set Zipcode input
      • Set Plus4 input
    • The reason we set MAK first is because MAK is the most precise key to an address, even more precise than addresskey. This will give you the best census and lat/long information, especially around borders.

    • The Zipcode and Plus4 inputs are if the MAK input is not found, we will use these inputs to provide fallback census and lat/long information.
  • Data file changes

    • GeoObject now only requires only 1 US data file to initialize, the “mdGeoCode.db3” file.
    • Census keys have been updated to Tiger 2018

GeoCoder Object Version 2777

  • We underwent a cleanup of our local libraries for our Unix platforms: Solaris, HP-UX, AIX. This cleanup involved removing old and irrelevant symbols. Unfortunately, this means that you may not be able to simply drop in this object. In those cases, no code changes are needed, just a recompile and relink.

Changed

  • Functionality change

    • Geocode() and GeoPoint() methods can now geocode Canadian records if SetPathToGeoCanadaDataFiles() is set correctly and your license allows for Canadian geocoding. Simply pass in the postal code as the ZipCode parameter.
    • GetResults value of GS01 (and deprecated StatusCode value of 9) now covers both US and Canadian records. If the record is a US record, GS01 indicates the record was geocoded to the zip+4. If the record is a Canadian record, GS01 indicates the record was geocoded to the full 6 digit Canadian postal code. Similarly, GS03 indicates geocoded to the Zip code level for US, and geocoded to the 3 digit postal code level for Canada.
  • Data file changes

    • New data file named mdGeoCanada.db now included. This file will be used to geocode Canadian records.
