Mapping, tracking, and routing are common in today’s digitally connected world. The accuracy of location information is essential, and geocoding plays a pivotal role in making that happen.
In simplest terms, geocoding connects a real-world location (latitude/longitude) to an actual address. Geocoding makes certain activities such as Facebook check-ins or getting turn-by-turn driving directions easy for even the most novice device user, but geocoding plays a larger role in corporate and governmental settings. GIS professionals use geocoding to accomplish many tasks including:
- Pinpointing the location of an address for package delivery
- Reverse geocoding to track a driver’s location in real-time
- Batch geocoding a group of addresses to determine their relationship to each other
Each of these use cases would be ineffective without accurate map data from a reliable source. MultiNet data from TomTom contains address ranges that are based on highly precise map data. Pairing MultiNet data with TomTom Address Points allows for even more accurate results.
