New Geocoding Engine in GeoMedia 6.1
I am pleased to find out that version 6.1 of Intergraph's line of GeoMedia products including GeoMedia, GeoMedia Professional, WebMap and WebMap Professional have a new address geocoding engine. In previous versions, I could only perform address geocoding with WebMap Location Server which uses the Annotated Centerline Engine (ACE) - that is still available in 6.1 for backward compatibility. The problem with this is that in this region, addresses are better located with postal codes that are tied to so-called address points, not left and right of centerlines. But 6.1 allows geocoding on both point and linear reference data. That means, I can use it here! Yeah.
