    Missing Street Number Data in MapPoint 2004

    When I try to geocode '442 Third St, Neptune Beach, FL 32266' in MapPoint 2004 North American Edition, one successful result is returned, but there is no street number, just '3rd St, Neptune Beach, FL 32266' in the 300-block of 3rd St North (even though this address is in the next block south).

    I first noticed the lack of street number when I was programmatically geocoding this address, and I wouldn't have thought twice about it except that MapPoint 2002 NA correctly returned '442 3rd St...'.

    I confirmed this by running MP2002 and used the 'Find' button to locate this address; sure enough, MP2002 returned '442 3rd St...'.

    But when I ran MP2004 and used the 'Find' button to locate this address, it returned '3rd St, Neptune Beach, FL 32266'.

    Did Microsoft (or one of its data suppliers) lose some data in moving from MapPoint 2002 to MapPoint 2004 ?

    Just as background, I installed MP2004 in addition to the existing MP2002 installation. Is this some sort of bizarre installation bug ?

    Thanks

    I believe it's like you said, MP 2004 "lost" information.. it's smart to keep the old version installed and handy for cases like this.

    If you click up and down the road in both versions, in MP02 you see addresses on most segments, in MP04 on that road there are no addresses.

    Zooming back and looking at the gray dotted line, if I interpret things correctly it looks like it's NavTech data in both versions (not GDT).

    I could only recommend if you have a big geocoding job to run it against both versions and merge the results. For a small routing-type app where performance is more important then stick with MP04-only probably (though I could imagine a button or dialog that would prompt a user to ask if they want to try geocoding addresses rejected in MP04 in MP02).

    Thanks. I'll look into that type of solution, but I surely wish (wrong forum ?) Microsoft would fix this and update the data.

    Regarding another issue that you mentioned, so those gray dotted lines demarking gray metropolitan areas are actually delimiting the NavTech data ?

    That's interesting.
