What is Geocoding?

The process of converting an address in text format to a latitude and longitude is known as geocoding. Creating coordinates for locations helps place it on a map.

Geocoding is essential in today’s world as both cities and businesses are growing. Searching for a particular location in twisted lanes and alleys is like finding a needle in a haystack. A good geocoding solution can save time and resources as well as increase efficiency. It also helps to pick out fake addresses. Geocoding intelligence is a valuable asset in both developed and developing countries.

Locus’s geocoding solution follows a more practical approach rather than a technical one, so it is designed to work well with humans. For instance, if the geocoding engine is unable to locate the exact coordinates then it gives a nearby location from where the delivery person can find their way.
