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:


COVID-19 Status  


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 (support@cdxtech.com and sales@cdxtech.com) 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.  


Latest Data Updates


Canadian and U.S. data feeds of CDXZipStream were updated as of May 22.  If you would like to update your database to reflect these changes, select the "Account" option on the CDXZipStream menu in Excel and click on "Check for Available Database Updates".  You can then update each database as required.


CDXZipStream updates are a part of the one-year software maintenance subscription included with your purchase.  If you would like to extend your subscription, please sign in to the CDX Technologies website and from the account area for CDXZipStream, select "Buy Data Update".  The maintenance agreement also includes access to the latest version of CDXZipStream.


As always, we hope you find the information here helpful for you and your organization.  You can contact us with your feedback and suggestions by replying to this email.
