GEO has just published a new address locator web service<http://navigator.state.or.us/ArcGIS/rest/services/Utilities/gc_Composite_10/GeocodeServer> that will replace our existing<http://navigator.state.or.us/ArcGIS/rest/services/Utilities/gc_composite/GeocodeServer>, outdated service. The new service is a composite locator, and includes address point data that GEO has gathered from local jurisdictions, as well as the other locators listed in the table below. This service can be used for batch geocoding in ArcGIS Desktop or as a locator service within interactive web applications.

This composite geocode service is currently based on the following individual locators:

Source Data

Locator Type

Address Points

Address Point data for State of Oregon, DAS, 2012 (primarily 2011 data)

US Address-Single House

OrTrans Street Centerline

OR-Trans, ODOT, 2012

US Address - Dual Ranges


GNIS, USGS, 2012 (for place-name searches)

General - Gazetteer

Zip Codes

Zip Code Boundaries, Maponics, 2012 (converted to point dataset)

US Address - Zip 5-Digit

City Limits

City Limits, ODOT, 2012

General -Single Field
