MSDI Framework Geographic Names
Abstract This is an Esri geocoding web service based on the Montana Geographic Names Framework. It was published from a "POI Role" based locator constructed in ArcGIS Pro. The POI locator was built using a point feature class with data classified as "Montana" or "Official" for the primary location table. An alternate name table was constructed of names with a designation of "Alternate" or "BGN". ("BGN" designated names indicate contrast between "MT Names" and "Official" U.S. Board on Geographic Names. The name is the official name recognized by the Board on Geographic Names, but the State of Montana believes it is incorrect.)Output location properties are based on the following for the primary table: "Place Join ID " from MT GNIS "GNIS_ID" field, "Place Name" from MT GNIS "Name" field, "Category" classication from MT GNIS "Class" field, "County" (or subregion) from MT GNIS "County" field.Output location properties are based on the following for the alternate name table: "Join ID" from AltName "GNIS_ID" field, "Place Name" from AltName "Name" field. Geolocator was constructed with "Global High" precision type. The geocoding service can be used in ArcGIS or via the REST endpoint.More information on the Montana Geographic Names Framework:{0c57ebe2-f8e8-4d55-b159-ab3202898956}
