No Geocoder dataset available error

5 - Atom

No Geocoder dataset available error is coming when i am trying to add Street Geocoder.

Could someone please help to resolve the issue.

Hey @sonamgupta131, the Geocoder datasets are separately priced from the desktop installation. Check out pricing here  (you need the Spatial Data package) and make sure that your company has purchased a dataset to be able to use this functionality.

 

If you have purchased the datasets and it still isn't working, I would contact Alteryx Support to troubleshoot why the dataset isn't being picked up by Alteryx.

Hi @danrh,

I already have procured the package as part of the license agreement and installed it successfully still it is not coming.

I have the same issue.  How does one direct Alteryx to where the spatial data has been downloaded?

Hi @MelissaTeal 

 

After you download the data you need to run the installation process. Check out the article I wrote for installation steps here.

Hi @TravisR

 

I've downloaded and installed CASS US and CA, but my parse address tool still does not show an available geocoder. Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

To further clarify, I ran the following steps as well - the results returns a "2017_09_TomTomQ32017_91.ini", -a little outdated perhaps, but it exists.

 

The geocoder is installed if you open File Explorer to %PROGRAMDATA%\Alteryx\DataProducts\DataSets\Explorer and you see an .ini file for TomTom. Assuming the .ini file is there, open the file in a text editor and confirm the DataPath resolves in another File Explorer window. The contents of the .ini should look similar to this...

 

[Settings]
DataPath=[local directory or server name]\2018 Q3 US Data\Explorer\TomTom_US_2018_Q3
DbSetName=TomTom US Q3 2018
DbSetDesc=TomTom US Q3 2018
DbSetBaseName=TeleAtlas_US
DbSetBaseNameDesc=TomTom US
DbSetVintage=2018.3
CountryCode=US
CountryDesc=US
PublicDataset=True

Hi @brianfarrer 

 

The parse address tool does not contain a geocoder. You need to use either the US Geocoder or the Street Geocoder tools.

 

Additionally, you may want to confirm that there is a .src file at the filepath the ini points to. Seems a bit odd that a file named Q3 2017 would contain references to Q3 2018. You may end up needing to reinstall the spatial data as I am guessing that the ini file may have been edited by another user.

Hi @TravisR,

 

Apologies for all the ambiguity in the last reply. I was just quoting what I pulled from a separate help doc - my .ini file does reference the 2017 dataset - I should have made that more clear. I just don't think the issue is there.

 

And you're right, I'm actually specifically referring to the "Street Geocoder" tool. I don't appear to have access to the US Geocoder tool (though I have access to a US ZIP9 Geocoder). I'm just trying to derive longitude and latitude points for a list of addressing for utilization in visualization.

 

So - to start over: I'm trying to use the Street Geocoder tool, but the dropdown simply says "No Geocoder Datasets are Available", even though I verified I have the TomTom and CASS datasets (downloaded and installed). Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

Brian Farrer

@brianfarrer It's hard to tell over just community posts. I would recommend reaching out to our support team.
