    Street Name check on road Segments

    ashutosh05
      Hi
      I have a small problem.
      I want to check street names and duplicates.
      Street name segments should have only one street name throughout segments.
      I want to detect segments which have more than one street name.


      Regards

          If I understand it correctly; you want to check if your streets are appropriately named, right?  But what is your criteria?  If it is simply spelling, I suggest using a summary table to examine what names and how many of them are returned.  This way you can find common misspellings, extra spaces etc.

          Hope this helps-

              Spatially is a bigger problem; you want to find connected street segments that should have the exact same name.  Something to consider is that street names do change with space so weeding those out programmatically is difficult at best.

              I've said it for years; geocoding is [good] data intensive. Being of the gray haired persuasion, I've spent countless hours pouring over street feature classes making sure names and ranges are correct. 

              It might just be time to roll up your sleeves and get you hands a little dirty...;)

                Hi once again thanks for the assistance.
                I have small question.
                I want to normalise the road names.
                EX ST.Jhon WEST ROAD
                     ST Jon WEST Road
                In the above example we see its a name of same street and written in two different ways.
                So is there way that i can find percentage match in it.
                May be excel or arc gis any tool

                Regards
