[mapguide-users] Geocoding Engine Goes Open Source

Given that it's LGPL, it seems to be a good fit with MGOS. I'll have to see about compiling and testing this locally. It does seem to be specific to US addressing style, but a post on one of the Directions articles indicates that it should be easy to build/plug-in other systems.
I'll have to play around with it. I wonder if it's only a linear interpolation geocoder, or if it works with polygon features as well. It would be nice to be able to set up multi-tier geocoding with parcel polygons, road centrelines, and postcode polygons as fallbacks.

There were a couple of discussions on MGOS and geocoding last week. Those interested may want to check out this article about the recent open-sourcing of SRC's geocoding engine.
