Custom Geocoder Server

Under the Site Admin > Maps > ArcGIS, you can choose which ArcGIS geocoder can be used. If you are using the official ArcGIS geocoder, you can choose the default value as "ESRI/ArcGIS online." You can also use the custom geocoder server instead if you have your own ArcGIS geocoder server.
