Gettin' Dirty with Geocoding: How Addresses Go Geo

  • March 18, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • WeWork Fulton Center

Maptime number three: geocoding. Have you ever had a bunch of addresses but couldn't map them? This month we'll focus on geocoding, a process that gets you mappable points for addresses. We will explore a few different ways to get points and features in the physical world into the digital world and explain the nuances and pitfalls of doing that work. After short intros about Pelias - an OpenStreetMap Geocoder with Elasticsearch, SmartyStreets and some live tutorials (OpenRefine and other geocoding options), we will then hit a few problems head on and look at real-world issues people are struggling with.


So bring your laptops and some addresses and we will work together to help each other advance our mapping skills and projects.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
