Geocoding Intersections

I’ve seen a few users using intersections to geocode against in the geocoder, it works great. Just put the intersection in the “Address” field in the format “ and “, for example:

5th and Main

You of course will still need to use the City and State fields to make sure your intersection is located properly. Its probably good to use street direction and type when available as well. Just append them to each street, i.e.:

SW 5th Ave and SW Main St

I’ve seen this done as a way to highlight sections of highway that obviously don’t have addresses, but do intersect other roads.
