Why are 2 exact same URL lines giving me different Geocodes???

Hi,

I'm really puzzed by this. Here are the two lines that I'm sending:

Line #1

"http://www.mapquestapi.com/geocoding/v1/address?key=MYKEYVALUE&outFormat... 120th Rd., St. Albans, NY"

Line #2

"http://www.mapquestapi.com/geocoding/v1/address?key=MYKEYVALUE&outFormat... 120th Rd., St. Albans, NY"

 

With line #1, I'm getting Lat, Lng of 42.083266,-78.44257

With Line #2, I'm getting Lat, Lnk of 40.685912,-73.759887

 

Line #1 is wrong. Line #2 is correct. This distance between the two is  like 300 miles.

 

Can you tell me why that would happen???

 

Thanks for your help.

BTW, I purchased a plan for this month just to continue testing, but I will probably cancel it once that's met because we really don't need that many transactions. Thanks.

I get a P1AAA with the correct location every time I test this request. The incorrect location is around Reed St, Olean, NY 14760. Is there another record being tested with that address or close to it?

No. I adjusted the Lat, Lng

No. I adjusted the Lat, Lng in my database. It's the only one that was giving me this trouble. Hopefully it was just some sort of glitch. But I'll keep an eye on it.

 

Thanks again.
