For every result, Geocodio will give you an accuracy type and an accuracy score. We recommend using a combination of the accuracy score and accuracy type to evaluate and filter the returned results.
Accuracy types include:
Given a random sample evenly distributed across the US, you can expect 70% of results to be rooftop, 20% to be range interpolated, and 10% to be other accuracy types.
Accuracy scores are a reflection of the amount of differences between the input and the output. We generally recommend using results with an accuracy score above 0.8. Results below that threshold can indicate potential issues, such as formatting issues or incomplete addresses.
Example: 47 N State St, Lake Oswego, OR 97034
