Convert addresses to geocoordinates and vice versa with high accuracy
What is the purpose of geocoding?
Geocoding is the process of converting addresses into sets of latitude and longitude coordinates and vice versa. It’s a prerequisite for all geolocation-based applications: It enables you to search and precisely display geographic locations on digital maps. Therefore, geocoding is the foundation for all mapping and vehicle routing and optimisation tasks.
Features of Geocoding API
Enter information using either free-form or structured input
As user of the PTV Geocoding API, you benefit from maximum flexibility: Use free-form input to enter addresses without considering the order of address elements, or use the structured input to determine the match quality of the single address elements.
Why geocode with PTV Geocoding API?
The PTV Geocoding API is a software developer component, available as a cloud-based web service or an on-premise solution. Due to its standardized interface, the component can be easily integrated into an existing software architecture. It handles geocoding requests quickly – for individual locations as well as for entire databases. The PTV Geocoding API offers maximum flexibility and highest precision: It allows you to enter address information without specific formatting requirements. We provide a highly accurate database, enabling perfect matching of geo-coordinates and geolocations. Moreover, we supply detailed geocoding documentation as well as continuous training and support.
