Is there a way to get information about the estimated population along a certain road? For example, is it possible to find out how many people live along Main Street(of course, in a specific town, state, and zipcode)?
I think if you have population data and related road TFID, town, state and zipcode, you can create the additional index that store the key value pair for them, when our Geocoder returns the matching result, it contains the road TFID that you can use it to search on the additional index to get population.
Our Geocoder is a flexible framework so that you could extend it easily, you can create your custom matching plugin inherit from the abstract class MatchingPlugin and implement your own logic according to your data, and then just add it to the object Geocoder’s property MatchingPlugIns. You can find the sample in our HowDoI samples which is under the installation folder.
Awesome, thank you James this is exactly what I wanted.
If you meet any problems in Geocoder, feel free to let us know.
