Ticket #1111 (new enhancement)
Add matching status to geocode output
|Reported by:||mikepease||Owned by:||robe|
As I've been evaluating the correctness of the geocoder, I've wrapped the geocoder function inside a query that tells me which components of the input address matched.
I compare the components of the output of normalize_address() to the components of the geocode.addy geocoded address.
When all the components match, I'm pretty sure it's a good geocode. When most of the components match, I can get a pretty good idea of how accurate the geocode is.
Maybe you'd like to add these "match" attributes to the output of geocode() to augment the rating column.
house number matched?
street name matched?
street direction matched?
