  • Level 5 (Yellow) = Street level. Street number is missing or not found.
  • Level 4 (Orange) = Zip Code level. Street name and number are missing or not found.
  • Level 3 (Red) = City level. Zip Code, street name and street number missing or not found.
  • Level 2 (Purple) = State level. City name, Zip Code, street name and number missing or not found.
  • Level 1 (Purple) = Country level. State, city name, Zip Code, street name and number missing or not found.
  • Level 0 (Black) = Unable to geocode data.

At any moment you can get information about records geocoding quality from the list view. Mouse hover a marker and a tooltip informs you about the geocoding level how to improve it.
