Hi,
I am having a hard time finding the address of a location using mappoint webservices V4.5

For example if i wanted to find the address of the "Empire State Building" or the "University Of Miami", I just can't seem to figure it out. Below is snippet of code that i have been testing with.

I really appreciate any help on this.

Thanks
FindServiceSoap findService = new FindServiceSoap();

        findService.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("888888888", "8888888888888888!");

        findService.PreAuthenticate = true;

 

        FindSpecification findSpec = new FindSpecification();

        findSpec.DataSourceName = "MapPoint.NA";

        findSpec.InputPlace = "University Of Miami, Fl";

 

        FindResults foundResults;

        foundResults = findService.Find(findSpec);

 

        Label4.Text = "Found " + foundResults.NumberFound.ToString() + " Results";

        

        if (foundResults.NumberFound > 0)

        {

            FindResult res = foundResults.Results[0];

            Label6.Text = res.FoundLocation.Address.FormattedAddress;

        }

Hi surajguptha,

It returns a result and i can access the lat/lon and a few other properties, but not the address object of the result object.

Thanks!

There is no address property or the property does exist without values?
Isnt the address same as the input you passed to it?

there is no address property, but it says in the documentation that a call to find() returns an address as a property

Did you follow the map point Find Address sample in the path
C:\Program Files\Microsoft MapPoint Web Service SDK, Version 4.5\Samples\.NET 2.0\CoreFunctionality\FindAddress

hi, i've tested with the find address method, but because i am looking for the address of a specific place with no idea what the address is to start with, i think this is where the problem is.

I've even tried geo locating the location ie "University Of Miami" using the find method which gives me a latitude and longitude and then do a reverse lookup with the getLocationInfo method, but the address i not quite correct.

My thought is that what i am trying to do is not possible. Let me know if you think this is not possible and i can give you the points.

Thanks for all your help

If FindResults class doesnt have any address information my guess is that the actual address isnt returned by that method...

Can you check the FindResults Class??
