Geocode DES Style: A Look At the Arizona Department of Economic Security Geocoding Process
The Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) is the primary human services branch of the Arizona state government. The majority of the GIS projects conducted by the department involve mapping address data, such as locations of customers, community partners or DES offices. As a result, geocoding is a very important aspect of nearly every project the department does. This presentation will cover the DES geocoding procedure, including how to format an address table before geocoding, an overview of the DES custom composite address locator, and the post-processing procedure used to improve the geocoding results.
