For example I can GeoCode Pawnee, Pawnee County, Oklahoma, USA to Pawnee, Pawnee, Oklahoma, United States no problem, but Pawnee County, Oklahoma, USA is not recognized.
Anyone doing Geocoding? It does seem rather odd and I'm having similar issues
Yes, I do a lot of Geocoding and the present Rootsmagic functionality has many oddities and is disjointed in many ways resulting in far too much manual geocoding which is also easier in other software packages.
Let me take the first example here of "Pawnee, Oklahoma, United States";
If I look it up in Gazetteer I get a match so I copy and paste to the Place, all should be good and in line with Rootsmagic but it's not. I click edit on "Pawnee, Oklahoma, United States" in the Place List and then click the Geocode button and nothing happens???
I click the automatic Geocode option on Place List to go through all my Places and when the exception list comes up "Pawnee, Oklahoma, United States" is on it so not recognized. I select "Pawnee, Oklahoma, United States" the Gazetteer match appears on the right identical to my input, I accept it and now all is well???
Sadly this has been the case for many years and never addressed along with the many other short comings of Place Management. In my opinion it has become almost normal for Rootsmagic to introduce a feature, add it to their unique selling points but never finish it to a fully rounded and functional standard.
I, for one, expect some stellar improvements in Place Management in the next version, until then I think manually geocoding is the only time consuming option.
