GPS Visualizer geocode

"Geocoding" is the process of converting street addresses or other locations (ZIP codes, postal codes, city & state, airport IATA/ICAO codes, etc.) to latitude and longitude, which can be entered into a GPS device or geographical software. GPS Visualizer offers several options for geocoding your information.

NOTE: If you want to plot addresses on a map, it is highly recommended that you geocode the points first, save the results, and THEN run the coordinates through the map form to create a Google Map, Google Earth KML/KMZ file, or JPEG/PNG/SVG graphic. It will be much faster and easier in the long run, because your locations will only need to be processed once.

If you only need to find the coordinates of a single location, use GPS Visualizer's Quick Geocoder. This utility returns a small map and a nicely formatted table of information.

If you have a large batch of addresses for which you need coordinates, GPS Visualizer's Multiple Address Locator is the solution. This form allows you to geocode an large number of addresses using the geocoding API service from Bing Maps, Google, or MapQuest. Your data can be in either a raw, jumbled, unformatted list, or in a structured table with a header row; output is plain text but can be plotted on a map or written to a GPX file.

NOTE: If your data consists entirely of ZIP codes, Canadian postal codes, airport codes, states, or countries, use the converter described below in #3, or go straight to the map form.

3. Geocode simple tabular data

If your data is in tabular format (rows and columns) and contains simple data like ZIP codes, Canadian postal codes, cities, states, or airports, the best option is to format your data with an appropriate header row and then use GPS Visualizer's text/GPX conversion utility or one of the map forms directly - GPS Visualizer has built-in databases for these types of data, so it will be much faster than having to ask Google or Bing where each point is.

Not only will the mapper or converter be faster, but you can also take advantage of features like the quantitative data form, which can colorize or resize your data points based on frequency or other parameters. (The geocoding utilities listed above in #1 and #2 will attach coordinates to your points but won't do any further processing.)
