I'm helping geocode addresses, and new at it. My office does not have Arc Server, is this required? I found this conversation Address or reverse geocode a point shapefile that points me to address locators. Can I just load the street map and do this in ArcMap without ArcServer?
if not, I have been trying to do this through ArcGIS Explorer for Desktop, but it is suprisingly frustrating to migrate from this to ArcMap. It doesn't provide xy locations as a field, and only preserves one field from the original spreadsheet. In ArcMap I was able to do a join, and then 'add xy coordinates'. but there's got to be an easier way.
