What is Geocoding?
Address geocoding, or simply geocoding, is an intricate task that involves multiple datasets and the processing of converting text-based descriptions of locations into geographic coordinates, which you can use to place markers on a map.
Why use Geocodes?
Geocodes are an efficient way to help import large amounts of data from a CSV file.
Scribble Maps and Geocodes
Upload your file and your account will automatically debit a single geocode for each location you import/convert from an address into coordinates for a marker's location.
To learn how to upload a CVS file, visit: Import List/Spreadsheet (.CSV) data to produce markers on a map - (MS Excel/Google Sheets/etc.)
Pro Basic = 500 Geocodes/month
Pro Business = 5,000/month
- The Geocodes renew each month for both plans but do not carry over from one month to the next.
- If you get a year subscription you can not use them cumulatively in the first month.
- If the spreadsheet you are importing already has the latitude and longitude it will not use a geocode.
- Once you use a geocode you don’t have to use one again for the same map.
