We've greatly expanded our product offerings. In addition to improving CDXZipStream we've added web based browser tools and API services. While each product has it purpose, there are overlapping capabilities which can make choosing what to use confusing.
So we've created a video which covers the three major products that CDX Technologies offers. Three products are reviewed, the CDXZipStream Excel Add-in, our CDXStreamer Address Correction and browser based tools and CDXGeodata REST API Services and add-ons.
We'll be producing additional videos in the coming months describing how you can gain additional benefits from using CDXZipStream and our other products. Please consider subscribing to the new CDXTech channel on YouTube and turning on notifications if you would like to be alerted when they are available.
We are continuing to add to the breadth and scope of our CDXStreamer browser based tools available at cdxtech.com. A new Bulk Location Data Batch Report has been added that can perform forward and reverse geocoding.
This application works in a similar fashion to our Address Correction and Zip+4 tool. The major difference in the tools is the Location tool can handle worldwide addresses whereas the Address tool only covers the US. Partial or “Fuzzy Information” such as just a street address can also be entered to return possible matches. You can also simply enter two columns with latitude and longitude for reverse geocoding.
To use the application upload an Excel (xlsx) file or csv file to the application and it will produce an output report covering the best match, latitude, longitude and other relevant address data.
The tool can handle up to 10,000 locations at one time and uses the HERE API as a data source. When the report is created you will receive a download link and an email receipt. Locations can be entered as complete or partial addresses, zip codes or geocodes. It will work for US or International locations, any country that HERE supports.
There is a $9.95 minimum report charge and it can be used with your CDXStreamer account for lower costs. Just a web browser is necessary to run the tool, no additional software is required.
You’ll find the tool is useful if you have just a one-time report requirement or if you need to deploy and this type of application to your entire workforce. A single CDXStreamer license covers an unlimited number of users. CDXStreamer is just billed on the number of requests and does not require a separate license as CDXZipStream does.
For a tutorial on using the Location Data tool please see the following video.
The CDXZipStream ACS data feeds for state, county, ZIP code (ZCTA), place, and CBSA (Core-Based Statistical Area) have been updated with the latest data releases from the U.S. Census Bureau. These data are from the American Community Survey, which surveys about 1 out of every 38 households every year. These feeds are available in the CDXZipStream Premium ACS version. Data are aggregated over the years 2015 through 2019, with the exception of state demographics, which are provided for the year 2019.
The demographic areas covered in all ACS feeds are: age, population, household size, household income, individual earnings, race and ethnicity, educational attainment, school enrollment, housing value and rent, mortgage status, and marital status. For a full listing of all data fields included in the feeds, please download the CDXZipStream Data Feeds and Definitions file here.
