You can also use http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/geocoder/ with your own API key for batch geocoding but there are also the common restrictions if you don't want to pay for the service. (Just one addition in general : Outside the USA where you don't have tiger data you could use http://www.gisgraphy.com/ )

I generally use a Tiger Geocoder on PostGIS to do all my geocoding. This approach has several advantages. The biggest that it is free and it is something that you own completely. You won't get surprised by any change in the license or terms of use. I'm not sure if you can get all the fields that the process you were using before will give you, but you should ...

In case you have QGIS installed: you can use Google's (outstanding) geocode functionality easily with the MMQGIS-plugin. MMQGIS --> Geocode --> Geocode CSV

I recommend you to add separating commas between Street, City, State, Zipcode and Country. This allows the system to recognize your addresses better. Check the result: PS: Notice that you can add the commas in a programatic way in your whole table by using a query.

1) There's a bit of code you can add to your spreadsheet and run a macro. The instructions are detailed here: https://vilimpoc.org/blog/2013/07/11/google-spreadsheet-geocoding-macro/ 2) CartoDB can pull in a google doc spreadsheet directly from your account, then you can export it back out: 3) Download your Google Drive Spreadsheet to a CSV, then use ...

http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/geocoder/ You have to use your own API-key but apart from that it works quite well. If you want set up your own service you can use gisgraphy http://www.gisgraphy.com

A very simple code that moves all points to the centroid of their respective polygons. Screw checking if they are correct or not to begin, says I. It sounds like it doesn't matter where the point falls as long as they're in the polygon. Just moving all the points should save time. And you'll have prettier looking data. The only wonkiness is that I perform ...

If you've got QGIS, the MMQGIS plugin has a pretty cool Geocoding function where you can load a .CSV file and utilise Google and/or OSM (or even your own road/address data) to create some points and write them to a Shapefile. The quality of your Geocode would be dependent on the quality of your input data as well as the quality of Google and OSM ...

Well, there very well may be a better method of doing this than comes readily to my mind, but, I do have some thoughts, so, here they are. First thing I would do is make sure you have some fields in your parcels with the X/Y centroid of the polygon, (making sure the point is actually within the polygon for odd-shaped/non-rectangular parcels). Optionally, ...

The following (untested) code should do the trick. This first gets the geometry of the points and polygons into dictionaries, then uses the polygon dictionary with the contains method of the arcpy.Polygon to test if the correct point is inside it. If not it is added to a new dict and used to update the point geometry. import arcpy def ...

1) For one time solutions Google Fusion Tables may be usefull. You can upload excel, geocode there and then download different formats. 2) For DB solution check Tiger Geocoder for Postgis/postgresql

Your request to suggest has category filtering while your find suggest does not. I have found ESRI category filtering and magic keys to be very finicky.
