Our apologies for the inconvenience this may cause.

The Geocoding API is a powerful and useful tool that provides location information for any given address in the United States. Geocoding is a process that assigns geographic data (ie, latitude and longitude) to an address. For example, the API would take the address “1214 W 6th St. Austin, TX” and return the latitude 30.272896 and the longitude -97,757443.

The API interprets custom address queries and responds with location information matching those addresses. The information for a given address may include street name, geometry type, FIPS county code, country code, lat/long coordinates, country ID, country name, region, and locality. The API also calculates a confidence score for accuracy of information delivered for each query.
