On October 18, ProgrammableWeb will host a webinar discussing the critical importance of GeoEnrichment and data quality. You’ll learn what to look for in quality APIs, and see new APIs from Pitney Bowes in action. Pitney Bowes offers more than 4,500 global datasets.
Geocoding involves converting a description of a physical address into coordinates that represent that location on a map to perform spatial analysis. This tutorial on the Google Maps APIs blog describes the two approaches to geocoding with Google Maps APIs, and when to use them.
