ArcGIS Geocoding Service - December Release Highlights

As part of Esri’s commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions in the geospatial domain, we are excited to announce a series of enhancements to our geocoding service.

Our latest update includes bug fixes, quality improvements, and data enrichments that not only improve your experience but also provide more accurate and reliable results.


Quality Improvements

Our team has been diligently addressing bugs and implementing numerous quality improvements to enhance your interactions with our services.


What to expect:

1. Improved Handling of House Number Formats in Czechia: We have enhanced our system to handle different house number formats in Czechia. This means that addresses in Czechia that use informal house numbers will still receive accurate location results. With this improvement, you can trust our geocoding service to provide precise information for any address in Czechia.


2. Enhanced Short Input Handling: We have significantly increased PointAddress match rates by improving the handling of ambiguous address input. Now, our system is even better at providing relevant matches to incomplete inputs, making it easier and quicker for you to find what you’re looking for. Say goodbye to frustration caused by incomplete addresses!



Data Enrichment

In addition to bug fixes and quality improvements, we have enriched our data sources to provide you with the most up-to-date information.

Here is the latest reference data update:
