MapMarker® Plus Features:

Street-Level Matching - Match address records containing street-style addresses against a search table of addresses and geographic (longitude and latitude) coordinates. 

Geocoding with Other Criteria as Input - In addition to geocoding records with street style addressing, MapMarker® Plus will geocode records containing Place Names (like Sears Tower or Candlestick Park), Highway Exits, and airports using the abbreviated airport code (LAX for Los Angeles).

Display Streets - Ships with a street display layer for use with the geography you purchase. Customers requiring quality presentation street display are encouraged to purchase MapInfo® StreetPro®. 

CASS Certification - Meets the U.S. Postal Service Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS) 2003/2004 requirements for address standardization. 

Single Address or Batch Geocoding - Choose to geocode one address at a time or batch geocoding for processing one or more tables without constant user interaction.

Address Dictionary - Data based on three sources of address and geographic information, all of which are updated quarterly. Address data from the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), ZIP + 4 Address data from the U.S. Postal Service, Street Geometry and related information from Tele Atlas' Dynamap/2000® file, and ZIP + 4 centroids from GDT. 

Custom Address Dictionary - Associate multiple cities to a single ZIP Code. Override or extend the address information provided in the Address Matching Dictionary with a MapInfo table containing your own spatial information.

Candidate Visualization - See where potential matches fall on a map before selecting a candidate. 

Automatic and Interactive Geocoding - Runs in both automatic and interactive mode. Automatic mode may be used on the first pass to geocode most of the table. For unmatched records, interactive mode may be used to individually choose the best match from a list of suggestions. 

Quick Geocode - For geocoding without all the setup, the Quick geocode button allows you to click and go. The table will be geocoded with the current preferences without displaying the Geocode dialog.

Result Codes - MapMarker® Plus returns result codes for each record it attempts to match so you can see whether a match was made and how precisely each address component matched.

- MapMarker® Plus -

The premier geocoding product for mapping and analyzing business data.

MapMarker® Plus, MapInfo's powerful geocoding tool, is the first step toward mapping and analyzing your business data - adding geographic coordinates to every record in your database. MapMarker® Plus matches records against its comprehensive Address Dictionary, a database of USPS street addresses, street geometry and the latest ZIP + 4 centroids.

Enhanced by Tele Atlas data, MapMarker® Plus can locate millions of addresses with street level precision. Combining an increased number of streets, with a greater number of addresses, MapMarker® Plus delivers up to a 30% increase in hit rate at the street level compared to the standard MapMarker®. MapMarker® Plus gives you greater control, while spatially enabling your data.

MapMarker® Plus ensures accuracy when visualizing business location information, such as stores, customers and your competition as well as:

  • Geocoding large tables in batch mode for fast results (geocode up to 600,000 records per hour)

  • Geocoding interactively through friendly user interface (you make the final decision if there is a match) to maximize the number of matches and to control error rate

  • Geocoding to street addresses or ZIP Code Centroids

  • Identifying result codes by the type of match to tell at a glance the street address matches from the ZIP Code Centroid matches

  • Standardizing addresses to meet USPS CASS requirements (CASS certification received for 2003/2004)

  • Geocoding remote tables via ODBC

Configuration Options:

Desktop - Purchase for use on a single computer for geocoding nationwide, within a 6-state region, or for an individual state. Multi-user pricing is available for deployment to multiple named users within a single organization. 

Server - Using industry standard RPC, MapMarker® and MapMarker® Plus can be deployed more efficiently as a Windows NT service or Windows 95/98 console application - handling multiple requests from multiple clients for real time geocoding. 

OCX/Active X - Use object oriented languages to embed geocoding in mapping applications. The OCX/Active X is included in MapMarker® Plus as well as the standard MapMarker® product. 

MapMarker® Plus for UNIX - Server based solution for customers implementing MapMarker® Plus on a Sun Solaris or HP/UX operating system. Customers create their own client user interface to provide geocoding via the APIs provided. 

MapMarker® J Server - A Java-based development tool for creating applications that send geocoding requests to the MapMarker® engine. It accesses MapMarker® or MapMarker® Plus across the Internet via HTTP. MapMarker® J Server enables geocoding from within the MapInfo Geocoding Cartridge, MapXtreme® Java solutions, and custom developed applications where access to the geocoding engine is via the Java API. The product includes the Java API for building a geocoding client and a sample client application.

MapInfo Geocoding DataBlade Module - With the Geocoding Datablade Module, you can geocode directly from Informix and then can store latitude coordinates in a SpatialWare® format with the addresses in you your database. It extends the capabilities of the Informix Universal Server database management system by adding a new geographical location data type and three routines that provide the geocoding functionality. 

MapInfo Geocoding Cartridge for Oracle8i and 9i - MapInfo Geocoding Cartridge is a Java-based tool that allows users to interact with the powerful geocoding engine in MapMarker® Plus from an Oracle8i or 9i database. The cartridge uses the MapMarker® J Server to communicate with MapMarker® Plus via Java Native Interface (JNI). Users may geocode addresses individually or process an entire table using functions and procedures provided with the cartridge. With the Geocoding Cartridge, Oracle customers can:

  • Enable their customer data with geographic locations to improve on analysis and reporting processes.

  • Save time by dynamically geocoding at point of data-entry, rather than repeatedly in batch processes.

  • Check address information against address dictionary for better accuracy.

MapMarker® ESP for Microsoft® SQL Server - Take advantage of MapMarker's geocoding function in your SQL Server databases. MapMarker® ESP (Extended Stored Procedures) enables geocoding calls to be implemented on a 'trigger' action, allowing automatic location updating of database address information. Geocoding can be done directly in the database instead of excerpting tables from database, geocoding them and inserting the tables back into the database.
