Welcome to the CDX Technologies May 2020 Newsletter
We cover our COVID-19 status and an upgrade to our
CDXZipStream Geocoding Template which adds the local zip code
database as a new data source.
Here is a link to our latest Blog postings:
We are now in month 3 of a "stay-at-home"
order from the state of New Jersey. But at least now we are
hopeful this will be lifted in June. As such we ask that you
primarily use email to contact us (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can
better handle any issues remotely. Please also take
advantage of our online
support resources which can solve most common issue
and our blog
for technical discussions.
We appreciate your understanding and wish that you and
your family stay safe during this time.
Geocoding Template Update
This template allows you to geocode a list of
addresses using data sources such as Bing to display the determined
latitude and longitude.
In addition to the existing geocoding sources (Bing, Maptitude and
Mappoint) we've added the ability to use our local zip code database
to geocode just by zip code. The "Map Data Source"
selection dialog now includes a new function "CDXZipCode"
that offers this new capability. If you just need zip code accuracy,
this is the fastest geocoding feed available and does not consume any
requests from Bing or the other sources. The zip code column in
the template is used for the data input and must be fully populated.
The template will now work with any CDXZipStream version. The
Lite and Findzip versions of CDXZipStream will now be able to use the
new CDXZipCode data feed. The CDXZipStream Bing or better
version is still required to geocode by full address. The template
can be download for free here.
