Letters and numbers appear in the same parsed section of a Puerto Rican address. Can this type of address be geocoded?

Yes. Many accepted abbreviations are used in Puerto Rican addresses such as “C” for Calle (street) or Carretera (state or county highway). This would not normally be an issue if not for the common usage of alphanumeric house numbering. One example is “C127”, which may very well indicate either the house number itself or Carretera 127, which is quite different. Extensive research and specially designed data sets, algorithms and queries make it possible for SeekData to geocode those types of records.
