Batch Geocoding

ThinkGeo Cloud Geocoder can process address data in batches, allowing you to make fewer requests and reduce overhead. Batch processing is available through our API clients or directly via the REST API.

Rich Location Metadata

A rich array of location data that can be returned with each coordinate point, including individual address components, districts and suburbs, zip codes, OpenStreetMap wiki data where available, and more.

Custom Projections Supported

You can pass in any arbitrary Proj-formatted projection string or a spatial reference system ID in the ESRI or EPSG namespace to get geocoded coordinates back in any projection you like.

Easy Access with Native Clients

Custom-designed API clients for the ThinkGeo Cloud make accessing all of our GIS web services a breeze. Choose from .NET or JavaScript, with more languages coming soon.


Design Features

Comprehensive geocoding coverage of the entire world with street-level accuracy.


Street-Level Detail with Global CoverageNew

Data Sources. The ThinkGeo Cloud Geocoding service combines address data from multiple sources, including TIGER data from the United States Census Bureau and OpenStreetMap.

Locate addresses, landmarks and POIs. More than just an address find, ThinkGeo Cloud Geocoder lets you instantly find the coordinates of everything from the local diner to major landmarks just by querying their name (where data is available).

Precision geocoder with customizable results. Use fuzzy matching to process string input in varying formats and of various quality. Search for similarly-named cities, streets, states, even zip codes, even if you're not sure of what you're looking for.



Why ThinkGeo Geocoding?

High performance. API access supports hundreds of requests per minute.

Batch processing. Have a group of addresses that need to be geocoded? Submit them all in a single request and get coordinates back in matching order.

Detailed metadata. Optional VerboseResults mode gives you every component of the address for programmatic analysis without string parsing.

Fuzzy matching. Not sure if your input data is accurate? Our fuzzy matching mode will look for similar results based on spelling and Soundex.

Cloud-Based GIS Server

ThinkGeo Cloud can be accessed from anywhere using simple RESTful web requests, so you can serve up great looking maps, or provide routing or geocoding to a variety of client applications.
