We have made changes to the output content and format of the Geocoding and Census Variable Intersection Services.
To accommodate these changes, the Texas A&M WebGIS Service API's have all been upgraded to version 2.93. The geocoding and census intersection API URL's have been updated and are listed on the geocoding API page and the census intersection API page.
All users should begin migrating their web services calls to use these new versions. A new desktop geocoding client will be available shortly.
The most significant changes to the Texas A&M WebGIS Geocoding and Census Intersection API's are the following:
- Additional census variables have been added including FIPS codes for place, minor civil division, metropolitan statistical area and others.
- Census block, tract, and block group have been reformatted to match the formats returned from the American Factfinder website.
Please let us know if you have any questions, run into any problems, or need any help.
