Inconsistent geocoding results returned for same address.

The following address has returned different results:

16452 Sea Lark Rd, Houston, TX 77062

We called the API 3 times, and the following was returned:

StreetAddress,City,State,PostalCode,County,Latitude,Longitude,Quality,Date
16452 SEA LARK RD,HOUSTON,TX,77062,HARRIS,29.557393,-95.124482,P1AAA,10/01/2019 08:57:23 PM
16452 SEA LARK RD,HOUSTON,TX,77062,HARRIS COUNTY,29.758938,-95.367697,A5XAB,10/04/2019 02:13:26 PM

The second entry returned a CITY level quality and the County, while the same one, is fully spelled out.  We have business rules specifically around the quality of the coordinates, and this affects coverage offerings based on confidence of the location.

Best regards,

Jim

Are you still seeing this
Are you still seeing this inconsistency? I haven't been able to reproduce it yet. It could have been a hiccup and resolved itself.

The operations team found a db in the east data center that was not well and has corrected it. Hopefully, that resolves the issue here.
