Geocode coverage

Various applications can access the World Geocode Service, including ArcGIS Desktop, the ArcGIS Online map viewer, and clients you develop using an ArcGIS Web API, such as the ArcGIS REST API.

The map and tables in this topic list the countries for which there is address coverage in the World Geocoding Service and the languages they support, grouped by relative geocoding quality. The overall geocoding quality is a function of the degree of street-level address coverage in a country, knowledge of a country's address styles, and geocoding performance for addresses in that country. The quality levels are subject to change. Typically, the quality of geocoding for a given country improves over time and may be upgraded to a better level, but there may be instances where countries are downgraded to a lower level based on user feedback.

Countries for which there is no address coverage are classified as Level 4 and are white in the map. Even though there is no address or street-level coverage in these countries, there is still admin-level coverage provided by the World Places locator. This means that cities, counties, provinces, and other administrative division types can be found in them.

When multiple languages are listed in the Supported Languages column for a country, it does not necessarily mean that all addresses in the country are available in each language. In some cases, a language may only be supported within a particular region of a country or for a small subset of addresses. Generally, in the Level 1 and Level 2 tables, the first language listed is the primary language.

The information in the following tables only applies to street addresses and not to POIs (geocode candidates with Addr_type = POI).

Note:

A valid Chinese city name is required for geocoding an address in China.

Two-digit language codes

The Two-Digit Language Codes column provides the valid values which can be used as input for the reverseGeocode operation's langCode parameter.

Note:

In this column, note that the language code XX is a convention used to represent transliterated or transcribed versions of a language.

The Default Language Code column specifies the language code value used by default for each country when the langCode parameter is not explicitly passed in a reverseGeocode request. This column is primarily applicable to the countries for which there are multiple supported languages.

Level 1

The darkest-shaded countries in the map are Level 1. They provide the highest quality geocoding experience. Address searches are likely to result in accurate matches to PointAddress and StreetAddress levels.
