Geocode Service GetStandardizedFields method

Gets the fields contained in an standardized address returned from the StandardizeAddress method (only supported for pre-ArcGIS 10 locators).




Return Value


A Fields object containing one of more Field objects. Each field is a match key for the geocode service.



The fields returned from this method define the match keys of a standardized non-intersection address. The match keys map to one or more match fields in the reference layer. The match keys are dependent on the address style used by the geocode service.

Each match key name is a two letter sequence prefixed by the address type. If a non-intersection address type, the prefix letter is "A". If intersection the prefix letter is "I". For example, a match key field that stores the standardized house number may be named "AHN". The alias for the same field may be more intuitive, such as "House Number". Within the geocode service, the match key "AHN" maps to four match fields (e.g. "LeftFrom", "LeftTo", "RightFrom", "RightTo") which represent fields in the reference data that contain the house numbers for both sides of a street segment.     

Use this method when constructing a PropertySet that represents a standardized address to pass to the GeocodeAddress or FindAddressCandidates methods or when inspecting an address that has been standardized using the StandardizeAddress method. This may be applicable if modifying the standardized output of the geocode service or if using another means to standardize input (e.g. third-party standardizer).
