The geocoding engine has been redesigned to include the following new features:
The Geocoding toolbar in ArcMap includes the new Manage Address Locators list and the Address Input box for single-line address matching.
Default locators are locators that are loaded automatically to the map when you start ArcMap or open a new map document. Default locators are available on the Geocoding toolbar and Find dialog box, and you can use them to find addresses right away. By default, a few geocode services from ArcGIS Online and the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) locator are available as default locators.
The Locations tab in the Find dialog box replaces the previous Places and Addresses tabs in ArcGIS 9.3.1. The Locations tab supports finding locations for addresses, places, landmarks, or coordinates.
Address locators or composite address locators can be created by selecting New from the context menu of any workspace. Then click either Address Locator or Composite Address Locator to open the dialog box for creating the corresponding type of address locator.
In addition to file folders and file and personal geodatabases, composite address locators can be created in ArcSDE geodatabases with ArcGIS 10.
