Re: Geocoding stopped - almost all the time

Mike - this time I remembered to select records before starting the geocoding to find out if that process would yield more coded locations in a single run. I selected about 500 uncoded place records ie about twice the number which was getting coded in a "normal" session. The geocoding started at the...

Re: Geocoding stopped - almost all the time

Thanks for the reminder, Mike! I'll try that again tomorrow.

Re: Geocoding stopped - almost all the time

This is an update, in case it helps others. I decided to follow Jane's advice, " Personally, I would just leave it a few days and you should find over time all your locations will geo-code... " I find that I seem to be able to run a batch of records about every 24 hours, and on each occasion, either...

Re: Geocoding stopped - almost all the time

Mike - thanks so much for your help so far! I plan to run the geocoding today on a set of places, but I seem to be missing an important piece of understanding. Apologies if this is this is a tiresomely basic question! I should let you know that I have read the relevant section in the book Getting th...

Re: Geocoding stopped - almost all the time

Mike - thanks for the reminder.

I have blocked the refresh of non-tentative geocodes in the tools setting, but I must admit I had not ensured that only those places with no geocodes were being checked. I'll try that tomorrow.

Re: Geocoding stopped - almost all the time

For reference purposes, I thought I'd let you know that when I switched on my computer today, and let it continue geocoding my full list, it added 99 more records' latitude and longitude before stopping. I will see over the next few days if that is typical.

Re: Geocoding stopped - almost all the time

I would be interested to see the answer to this. Although I am keen to use the geocoding, I don't want to use it unfairly or disproportionately.

Re: Geocoding stopped - almost all the time

Jane - thanks for that comment. I should perhaps have said that the great majority of my places are listed at parish level, or equivalents overseas. Only in my early stages of family history did I record addresses in the Place field, and I have weeded those instances out over the years. My addresses...

Re: Geocoding stopped - almost all the time

Very good points! Have implemented them.

I can now also see that, on those occasions when the coding stopped almost immediately, about 100 more locations were coded. Looks as though I will get there eventually.

Re: Geocoding stopped - almost all the time

Mike - Many thanks for your contribution. I can confirm that they locations do appear to be coding in order of record ID, so that part of it now makes sense. I can now also see that the software has made a pretty good fist of finding the right locations. I'll keep a note of the record ID which has b...

Geocoding stopped - almost all the time

I have recently upgraded to Version 6.2.7, and was particularly looking forward to using the geocoding function. My database has about 39,000 people in about 13,000 families, so I was aware that this might be a slow process. My computer runs Windows 10. My plan was to geocode all recorded locations,...
