Result Types

HERE Geocoder API uses matchLevel enumeration with flat structure, except match types for house number results. GS7 uses hierarchical structure with result types and subtypes.

The mapping below summarizes how HERE Geocoder API matchLevel corresponds to GS7 result types and sub-types.

GS7 has dedicated result types: matchType=locality, localityType=postalCode is only being used for regular postal codes for "High Precision" postal codes GS7 uses resultType=postalCodePoint
