Geocoding Development Kit is a tool kit of software program, documentation and samples that are used for creating or customizing geocoding rule bases. The geocoding rule base is a collection of files that direct the geocoding engine in how to standardize address data and match that data to the related location in the reference data.
This Geocoding Development Kit can be used by those who need to:1. modify the standardization results in order to suit different applications
2. enhance the existing matching rules to add or modify address fields for matching
3. support a new address style for different locale or country
The geocoding rule bases you develop can be used in ESRI GIS products, including ArcGIS, ArcIMS, MapObjects, and ArcView 3.x, that employ the same geocoding engine. The rule bases are usually adopted in an address locator style. This Geocoding Development Kit, however, does not describe how to create or modify an address locator style. Please refer to the user documentation of each product for information on modifying or creating new address locator styles.
