Let's take a trip to Null Island in this week's #DailyBrainCandiii post. Haven't heard of it? It is a favorite "destination" for those professional working with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and mapping technology.

Geocoding is a function performed in a GIS [Geographic Information System] that involves taking data containing addresses and converting them into geographic coordinates, which can then be easily mapped... Unfortunately, due to human typos, messy data, or even glitches in the geocoder itself, the geocoding process doesn’t always run so smoothly. Misspelled street names, non-existent building numbers, and other quirks can create invalid addresses that can confuse a geocoder so that the output becomes “0,0”. While this output indicates that an error occurred, since “0,0” is in fact a location on the Earth’s surface according to the coordinate system, the feature will be mapped there, as nonsensical as the location may be. We end up with an island of misfit data.

Managing and organizing enterprise data - especially spatial data - is simple with the right tools. Discover how the Integrated Marco Studio tools for Esri's ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro help teams sort through their Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and mapping resources.
