Address Geocoding

Digitized geo locations have become an integral part of offline and online navigation. Geocoding allows you to turn addresses into a pair of geo coordinates. You can use these coordinates for a variety of purposes, from building travel routes to searching for customer buying patterns.

If your application supports geographic coordinates, you can track customer movements and make offers according to their location. You can also gather a significant amount of data for further implementation in your sales and marketing campaign.

Let's take a closer look at what geocoding is all about.

What Is Rooftop Geocoding?

Rooftop geocoding is the process of gathering location data from several sources and using special algorithms to turn a street address on the map into a pair of coordinates, namely latitude and longitude.

The rooftop part of geocoding means that the location you get is actually the location of the roof of a specific building at that address.

Geocoding allows companies to find different locations based on their customers' demographics and gather relevant data about customer preferences.
