Standardizes an address using rules defined within the geocode service (only supported for pre-ArcGIS 10 locators).
StandardizeAddress(PropertySet Address, PropertySet PropMods)
Standardization is a procedure that usually
occurs before geocoding to prepare an input address for the match process.
Use this method to check the standardization rules applied to an input
address by the geocode service or to construct a PropertySet that represents a standardized
address to pass to the GeocodeAddress
or FindAddressCandidates methods.
The following diagram illustrates the geocode server proxy methods commonly used when working with this method. In addition, the diagram also includes the input and output information one can expect when using this method.
The PropMods parameter is a PropertySet containing the geocode service properties to use to find candidates for the address. The GetLocatorProperties method returns the set of default geocoding properties for the geocode service. Since this method does not perform any matching, most of the locator properties will not apply. However, you may choose to modify some properties associated with address definition, such as intersection connector types.
returned by this method contains the standardized address. If the standardized
address returned is a non-intersection address, then use the names of
the fields returned by the GetStandardizedFields method to
retrieve the components of the standardized address. If the standardized
address returned is an intersection address, then use the names of the
fields returned by the GetStandardizedIntersectionFields
method to retrieve the components of the standardized address. In addition
to the standardized address components, this PropertySet contains a property
named "Addr_type" that indicates the type of address. If the
value of this property is "A", then the address was standardized
as a non-intersection address. If the value of this property is "I",
then the address was standardized as an intersection address. The set
of remaining properties will depend on the value of this property.
