I found the problem. I used sample code for pyproj that I found in a tutorial: proj = pyproj.Proj("+init=EPSG:31255") coords = proj(rowdata["RW"], rowdata["HW"], inverse=True) The errors disappear when I use the code the following way instead: wgs84=pyproj.Proj("+init=EPSG:4326") proj = pyproj.Proj("+init=EPSG:"+rowdata["EPSG"]) coords = ...

I don't know whether this a desired answer but OpenStreetMap has a very good record for Germany! You can use nominatim in prob. 90% of your addresses and it will result in a coordinate based on house numbers! There is also a plugin for QGIS called OSMroute which can be used for this purpose! When it comes to official data I would search on the open data ...

You need to first geocode your XLS by converting it to CSV and then (as described in another answer) geocode it using MMQGIS 'geocode CSV with google maps' to create a point shapefile of your addresses. You then need to run a spatial intersect in QGIS using the Vector > Spatial Query tool on your address points and your buildings. You will end up with a ...

As already pointed out in the comments, the problem is that you are directly opening the HTML file in your browser. This will show up like file:///C:/map.html in your address bar. The OSMGeocoder plugin is calling the URL location.protocol+//nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search (see source code). This works on webservers because the location.protocol is ...

You could try and enter the country in the free text field. Use the iso3 code for Czech Republic: CZ Also, UPDATE table_name SET country='CZ' and retry the geocoding could work. Find a list of countries where postal code geocoding is available here Hope it helps

This is known as a spatial join. You can do this in any GIS software - QGIS is free so would be a good place to start. See Importing spreadsheets to display your lat/long coordinates on the map, then Performing Spatial Joins to associate the points with the zip codes. Then export the result to a new table.

There are different geocoders which use different methods and input data. One approach relies on centroids of either parcel or building data. If the address is 123 Main St, the geocoder identifies the parcel or building with that address and assigns the point location based on the centroid of the polygon This will be inaccurate, for example, when you ...

For a country the size of the Netherlands you don't need to worry about the spherical nature of the Earth or the edge effects in that link. So a simple average will be fine. You could actually use the rd_x and rd_y which I suspect are a projected coordinate system (I don't speak enough Dutch to read the metadata doc's to find out which one). This would ...

Well, coincidentally I have been working on this issue myself recently :-) Of course, Stack Exchange has the answer. A post at Stack Overflow, specifically, provides the algorithm to 'average' latitude and longitude data. For your convenience, and that of anybody who may search for this same issue, I have written an R script to achieve your goals: ### ...

As you mentioned in the comments, the Parcel data is your office's responsibility. I'm going to assume that you are only tasked with the spatial data portion of the newly subdivided lots and that another office in the municipality (Planning or Taxation, perhaps) handles assessment and land records management. If that is the case, I would consider adding a ...

a user uploads a zipped file with a bunch of files (.shp and .dbf) It sounds like you're looking for a shapefile technical document. ESRI has one published at this link: http://support.esri.com/en/knowledgebase/whitepapers/view/productid/21/metaid/279 There are a lot of open source shapefile tools, like Pyshp so you don't need to create your own. ...

Ah, this question. First, let me say that I work for an address validation company, SmartyStreets, but I will try to be objective. US Geocode data generally comes from two basic sources, FREE and EXPENSIVE. Let's go there for a little bit. Free geocode data comes from the US Census Bureau. Some will tell you that it comes from USGS or even from the ...

Yes, the rerun address would charge against your account. As you would be re-hitting the services hosted by ESRI this falls into the normal credit-usage. While there is not specific documentation of this; my personal experience with the ArcGIS Online credits and how they are applied see this as consistent.

Thanks for your suggestion. Finally I did exactly what I was looking for using the software PhotoMapper Desktop.

The basic idea is to listen for the geocoder.input and to create a point based on the result. geocoder.on('geocoder.input', function(ev) { map.getSource('single-point').setData(ev.result.geometry); }); Here's an example demonstrating it: https://www.mapbox.com/mapbox-gl-js/example/point-from-geocoder-result/

Using Bing, Google HERE, or any of the other enterprise mapping providers would require that the base maps also be from the same provider, with the exception that you can mix Bing and HERE data together. Bing Maps is a good choice as it has most of the data HERE has, but in some countries uses other (better) data providers, for instance, China, Japan, and ...
