Spatial - Geocoding

1 - About

Use a geocoding solution to return the necessary geographic data you need to:

  • Data Security Information filter on the coordinates
  • Provide customers with the closest dealer or store location.
  • Pinpoint customer locations and clusters
  • Define sales and marketing territories
  • Enhance target marketing by linking to Bureau demographic data for profiling and segmentation

3 - Google Example

In this example, I will search the correct address for my office. I put only the number and the street : Grote Wade 40 (Grote+Wade+40)

And you obtain a kml file (xml) :

<kml>
  <Response>
    <name>Grote Wade 40</name>
    <Status>
      <cod>200</cod>
