Determine street address from different geo coordinates

Is there a proven formula to match up slightly different lat/lng values to a street address without submitting both of them to a Geocoding service (since we've already done so and don't want to make a second api call). eg. The following coordinates are for the same street address (55 Church Street zip code 07505), but one set points to the building and the other to the street. lat : 40.9170109 long: -74.1702248 lat: ...more »

Prevent mixed content in EasyStats

http://www.census.gov/easystats/application/ calls the jQuery Templating Plugin from http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.templates/beta1/jquery.tmpl.js., which triggers a mixed content warning (and breaks the application in Chrome 42) when embedding EasyStats in an HTTPS page. The URL should be HTTPS or protocol-relative.

Inconsistent Output in Geocoding Services API?

Hi Everyone, First off, I want to congratulate you on putting together such a comprehensive and straightforward set of APIs. This is really excellent work, and it's a great way of making Census Bureau data more accessible. However, in integrating with the Geocoding Services API, I seem to have noticed a bit of an issue: when looking up Geographies, the results are inconsistent. In particular, if I execute an identical ...more »

How to get api to do geocoding?

I have used Tele-Atlas/TomTom geocoding service which is now been discontinued. I'm trying to find an alternative that would return most or all of the same variables.

 

1. How do I get access to the API?

 

2. How is the security? My data is highly sensitive and I have to be 100% there will be no way the data can be viewed or saved.

 

3. I have to geocoding around 100,000 addresses. Will this be an issue?

 

Thank you

IN Clause for Census Tracts within New York City

I want to retrieve tract level data for all of New York City. I know I can do this using five different calls, one for each of the five counties. I would like to do this with a single call. I have read that the IN clause does not support this (&in=state:36+county:005,061,047,081,085 only returns records for 005). Perhaps this could be done using a place but this is currently not a supported geographic hierarchy.
