Geocode data coverage

Various applications can access the geocoding service, including ArcGIS Pro, Map Viewer, Map Viewer Classic, and clients you develop using an ArcGIS Web API, such as ArcGIS REST API.

The map and tables in this topic list the countries for which there is address coverage in the 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.

View in Map Viewer Classic

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 available. This means that administrative divisions such as cities, counties, and provinces, as well as landmarks in some cases, 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.

Detailed information about open source data used for the geocoding service is available in the Esri Geocoding Address Acknowledgements document.

Note:

There are additional requirements for geocoding addresses in China.

To geocode any addresses in China, a valid Chinese city name must be included in the geocode request.

To geocode English or Pinyin addresses in China specifically, the sourceCountry parameter must be included in the request: sourceCountry=CHN.

Supported language codes

The Supported Language Codes column provides the valid values that can be used as input for the langCode parameter, which can be used with the reverseGeocode, findAddressCandidates, and geocodeAddresses operations.

The first language code listed in this column, which is in bold text, is the default language code for the country. The default language code is the value used by default for each country when the langCode parameter is not explicitly passed in a request. This column is primarily applicable to countries for which there are multiple supported languages.

The language code EN should be used for returning transliterated or transcribed versions of a language, or for returning Pinyin. The Supported Languages column indicates the countries for which such languages are available.

Note:

When there are multiple languages listed as supported for a country, it doesn't mean that every address in the country is available in each of the languages. It may be that addresses are available in multiple languages for only one region of the country, or that each language is exclusive to a different region and there is no overlap at all. The Supported Language Codes column shows the valid values that can be used for the langCode parameter in a reverseGeocode, findAddressCandidates, or geocodeAddresses request. The Supported Languages column provides the corresponding language names for the codes listed in the Supported Language Codes column.

Global data sources

The geocoding service includes global data sources for features which have no country codes associated with them.

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.
