SFAQ (Selected Frequently Asked Questions)

What is the geocoding accuracy? We generally return two types of geocoding results, Rooftop / Parcel Geocoding and Street Interpolation Geocoding. (The other types as based on postal/zip codes, city/neighborhood names, ip addresses, etc).
Currently over 40% of the geocoding requests we receive return Rooftop results with Confidence Score = 1.
Interpolated results have a maximum Confidence Score of 0.9.
for Example:
  1. 2525 Olympic ST, SPRINGFIELD, OR 97477 (Rooftop)
  2. 2524 Olympic ST, SPRINGFIELD, OR 97477 (Interpolated)
