AccuZIP uses Maponics data in new AccuGeocoder

Press release from the issuing company

Atascadero, CA - AccuZIP Inc. is now licensing the Maponics ZIP+4 Database Premium Plus Centroids data to offer premium centroid's in AccuZIP6's newly released AccuGeocoder product. With national coverage and over 56 million ZIP+4 records, (16-million more ZIP+4 records than are displayed in the raw USPS file), our new AccuGeocoder product can provide a precise centroid for each address range, including valuable census data with tract and block group codes.  Each ZIP+4 code can represent one side of the street, a floor in a building, or a specific Post Office Box.  Maponics carefully matches each ZIP+4 address range with their up-to-date street network and then spatially assigns it a latitude and longitude center point (also known as a ZIP+4 centroid).
The AccuGeocoder adds a street-segment level ZIP+4 centroid location. Street segment points are useful when you need to place a point on a map.  The street-segment points are generally anywhere from 50 to 200 yards from the actual location. The new AccuGeocoder adds Google Maps, Microsoft Bing Maps, and Yahoo! Local Maps links to our user interface, which enables you to visually identify the centroid point against real map layouts.
Centroid data can be added to each record one at a time or in batch mode at lightning-fast speeds of up to 2,000 records per second.  The AccuGeocoder product is seamlessly integrated into AccuZIP6 5.0.  The centroid data can be added during the CASS Process or separately by processing an existing address list that already contains ZIP+4 codes.
The Distance Calculator feature in the AccuGeocoder product can calculate the distance between two centroids with 15-decimal precision, (e.g., 0.001893939300000 miles).   The benefits are enormous, allowing you to perform radius selects using our integrated Search Editor for extremely targeted mailings.
