GIS 2: Intro to Geocoding Sets of Addresses

Geocoding is the process of transforming street addresses into latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates so that the addresses can be accurately displayed on digital mapping applications. There are several geocoding tools available and this workshop will cover these tools and will help you decide which one best meets the needs of your project.

Workshop Topics

  • Geocoding addresses to exact latitudinal and longitudinal points
  • Geocoding addresses to census tracts or block groups
Prerequisites: No prior experience necessary.
Note: This is the second workshop in a four-part series. For the full series, register for GIS 1, GIS 3, and GIS 4.
