Google Maps assigns additional location accuracy values to each location mapped and defines these values as such:
- "ROOFTOP" indicates that the returned result is a precise geocode for which we have location information accurate down to street address precision.
- "RANGE_INTERPOLATED" indicates that the returned result reflects an approximation (usually on a road) interpolated between two precise points (such as intersections). Interpolated results are generally returned when rooftop geocodes are unavailable for a street address.
- "GEOMETRIC_CENTER" indicates that the returned result is the geometric center of a result such as a polyline (for example, a street) or polygon (region).
- "APPROXIMATE" indicates that the returned result is approximate.
For addresses that Google Maps is not able to map (whether for a lack of location data or inaccurate location data), Maptive separates out this data for quick export back to a spreadsheet for correction.
