The module AMCS Geocoding possesses outstanding geocoding algorithms for automatic geocoding of address data.
Based on address data the module automatically positions orders/customers geographically by assigning X and Y coordinates. Moreover, the module shows a report on the geocoding quality. Thereby, the user is enabled to verify positions and/or change suggested positions by spelling the address again or by pointing in the map.
The AMCS Geocoding module serves purposes such as:
In connection with AMCS Geocoding, AMCS’s component for distance calculation can be used for calculating distances measured in time and miles/km, based on the street network and the vehicle attributes. This distance matrix can be built incrementally by the system or in batches, depending on which type of solution is needed.
AMCS Geocoding is an embedded part of AMCS’s planning systems but it can also be used as a service-oriented component for external systems. An example of the latter could be geocoding during order-taking.
