Points Databases (U.S. Only)

Points databases contain data for locating the center of a parcel. These databases provides enhanced geocoding accuracy for internet mapping, property and casualty insurance, telecommunications, utilities, and others.

Note: To use a points database, you must also install a streets database. See U.S. Geocoding Databases for the list of available US streets databases.
Note: To install the Global Geocoding Module databases on Windows Server 2008 you need administrator privileges.
  1. Make sure no applications are running.
  2. Insert the database DVD or download the database from the technical support web site, www.g1.com/support.
    Note: If you download the database from the Pitney Bowes web site, it will be downloaded as a zip file. Unzip the database before proceeding with the installation.
  3. Run Setup.exe. The installation wizard guides you through the rest of the process.
    Note: You may install databases on a mapped drive, but performance will be affected since you will be accessing them on a network rather than accessing them locally.
  4. After you install the database files, use either the Global Geocoding Database Resource tool in the Management Console or the Global Geocoding CLI database commands to define the database as a resource. For more information, see the Administration Guide.
