comment Is there an open source Geocoding tool which can be used commercially?
I just tried MapQuest geocoding (Open Data version), and it was only able to geocode less than 50% of the addresses I tried. The addresses are in CO.

comment Storing Polygons in PostGIS (data coming from shape files)
What I am trying to do is this: 1. Create one table where I can have a polygon and mongo_id 2. The metadata for the shape is stored in mongo but the actual shape is stored in postgres, but the information about the shape is in mongo. The only problem is, if I get shapes that have different srid's will I have problems if I store them in the same table?

Did you find the 2010 TigerLine data to be inaccurate for some addresses?
