|Spectrum Databases / Installing Enterprise Geocoding Module Databases|
International geocoding databases contain the data necessary to perform geocoding and reverse geocoding for locations outside the U.S. Each country has its own database, and some countries have optional databases that provide enhanced geocoding.
The SPD file is automatically extracted to:
Once the database has been extracted to the datastorage folder, it is installed and you can define it as a database resource using Management Console or the Administration Utility.
You can modify the Spectrum database installation process if needed:
If you installed the Australia Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF), you must specify the GNAF123 and GNAF456 as separate paths but in the same database resource in the Management Console.
GNAF123 contains the point-level dictionary. This has the highest precision of geocoding (characterized by Reliability Level 1, 2, or 3.) GNAF456 contains the remainder of address information in G-NAF that does not meet high precision geocoding criteria (characterized by Reliability Level 4, 5, or 6.)
We recommend that you use both databases to validate the existence of addresses but only use GNAF123 for parcel-level geocoding. If you do not require parcel-level geocodes you can use GNAF456 for geocoding.
