How To Improve Accuracy of Geocoding

Whenever an address is uploaded into your ElasticRoute for the creation of a stop, ElasticRoute will try to geocode and convert the address into its corresponding latitude and longitude.

To improve the accuracy of the geocoding process, it is recommended to provide the full address of the stop.

For example:
3 Temasek Blvd, Singapore 038983

If you happen to have a common address text field to be added to all your addresses, you may navigate to Settings > General Settings > Geocoding and enter the text to be appended for the geocoding process, thus allowing you to omit that text during the import of CSV.

An example is provided below to demonstrate the use of the Add Field feature for the City name.

With The Add Text

The City was being omitted from the CSV.
