County feed back

Does GEOCoder offer county info along with Longitude and Latidue?  If so what fields need to add to the query?

I don't believe so. You should be able query anything that Bing Maps supports, but I don't believe counties are supported. I will verify this when I have a chance, though, most likely this weekend. I sometimes use a spatial query against county shapefiles to determine the county, but this may return the wrong county in some cases, especially if the location is interpolated.

Thanks for the update.

I think it is possible to query for a particular county using the composite query ("xxx county, state"). While I was testing, however, I looked to see if the county was included anywhere in the validated address data that was returned and I did not find it. That is what I would like to verify again.
