When batch geo-coding, you can choose to either geocode US addresses against an online database, or to
geocode to loaded road data instead. If you choose to geocode against loaded road data, you must already
have road data loaded with a known address format, like Tiger/Line data in the US, or data with supported
attribute names for addressing information, like R_FROM_ADR, L_TO_ADR, R_FROM_CITY,
L_TO_CITY, etc., so that the data can be geocoded.
Once you complete a batch geocode operation, the results are displayed in a list in a dialog (see sample
below). The Batch Geocode Results dialog contains buttons allowing you to create new point features from
the matched address results or to export the results to a new file.
Find Features with Duplicate Attribute Values
The Find Features with Duplicate Attribute Values command allows you to search loaded vector features to
find those that have duplicate values for a selected attribute value. You can then view the results and manually
edit them, or choose to automatically assign unique numeric values for the selected attribute so that duplicates
no longer exist.
When you select the menu item you are first prompted to select which attribute (including feature name) to
search for duplicates on, then the search proceeds and any duplicate values are display in the Duplicate Search
Results dialog (picture below). This dialog allow you to view the features with duplicate results and to edit
those features or automatically assign new unique values. You can also press the Delete Duplicates button to
