#2000 new defect

allow the meter offset right/left to be overriden at geocode function level

Reported by: robe Owned by: robe
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS Fund Me
Component: tiger geocoder Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc: woodbri

Description

Currently the geocoder puts in a 10 meter offset. Meaning

If you give it an address, it determines what side of the street the address should be on and offsets it off the street center line by 10 meters.

Unfortunately there is no way to remove the offset or change it to something bigger or smaller, without changing the function default on the internal function:

interpolate_from_address

See http://www.postgis.org/pipermail/postgis-users/2012-September/035265.html

So proposastion is to add another default arg at the geocode function to allow this setting to be overriden.

Setting to 0 would result in no offset.

I may move this back to 2.1, but have my hands full with more pressing issues.
