Convert Addresses to Coordinates (Geocoding)
Does your business hold Australian customer addresses? Do these need to be cleaned and validated using an authoritative data source? Do they need conversion to latitude-longitude coordinates for visualisation or spatial analysis?
To help, you can leverage our ten year's geocoding experience through our sophisticated, G-NAF based Geocoder. Our Geocoding capability can be accessed via any of:
- A cloud-deployed web service, to enable your systems to talk directly with ours via an API
- A cloud-deployed batch file service, where your users upload Excel files and request to have these geocoded as a background process. When completed, your users receive an email with a link to enable them to download the geocoded result files
- A bureau service, geared towards efficient geocoding of millions of records. We geocode these large files for you on our production machines
- Callpoint's Geocoder operates using G-NAF, being the authoritative Australian geocoded address dataset compiled and updated by PSMA Australia
- Our Geocoder includes extensive address parsing and resolution capabilities. It is designed to handle both free format as well as partially structured addresses
- It also uses our processed edition of PSMA Transport & Topography data, so that our Geocoder can tackle street intersections
- Amongst the wide set of returrned G-NAF fields, our Geocoder includes the Address Detail PID (otherwise knows as the the G-NAF PID - Persistent Identifier). This PID is important to a number of sectors such as broadband telecommunications/ NBN Co Access Seekers, Government, insurance, financial services and other
- Callpoint's Geocoder delivers a comprehensive, informative set of structured result codes. This represents a point of difference to the minimialist single digit numeric only approach offered by some alternatives
- To help with geodemographic analysis, we return ABS data such as the Mesh Block and SA1 associated with G-NAF addresses
- Our cloud Geocoder makes use of https for end-to-end data encryption
