The Texas A&M WebGIS Geocoding API has been upgraded to Version 2.6. Details are available on the Geocoding API Page. The old version (2.0) will still work for a few weeks but anyone using it should begin updating their code to the latest version.
The main change in this version is to derive and return Census 2000 variables for block, block group, tract, county, and state. These variables will be returned for requests with the verbose flag set to true. These values are also output when running the geocoder on a database.
Additionally, this API version includes several address fields for the parsed and matched addresses. These are also returned when requested in verbose mode.
A new version of the desktop client with these new features is available here.
Let us know if you have any questions or run into any problems.
