Resolve cannot Reverse Geocode in Spectrum 8 SP1



Reverse Geocoding data flow fails to process coordinates in the input file.


Potential causes for this issue can include, but are not limited to:
  • The Transformer stage is having trouble with processing the coordinates due to incorrect formatting of the input file.
  • The file could have been created in a different OS platform. For example, if the data flow was created in UNIX but is being executed in Windows.
  • The environment is running Spectrum 8 SP1

You can resolve this issue in one of the ways described:

  •  Open the Read from File stage and edit the EOL (End of line) or line break of the file in the file properties.
  •  Regenerate the fields and attempt to process the file.

If the environment is running Spectrum 8 SP1 

The CDQ 8.0 S12 patch fixes a reverse geocoding issue that was introduced with Spectrum Technology Platform 8.0 Service Pack 1.
