I need opinions / experienced use on this issue:

Which API can be used to geocode an internal application of a company that meets these requirements:

  • Can be used for company internal application unlimitedly
  • Returns the latitude and longitude of the address more precisely and not atrealada the vertices (as with OSM)

Right now I'm researching on Yahoo Maps on license terms. I want opinions from someone who has passed this need. My application is to design routes using OSRM and Leaflet. I'm currently using Nominatim Geocode which returns me the lat / long in accordance with the vertices when the address is in the middle of the street - this causes problems.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • You can use Google Maps, although there is a limit to the amount and frequency of the requests. I used geopy (python module) for my purpose which works as a charm. – RutgerH Mar 16 '16 at 23:11

This is the most comprehensive Python geocoding library I have came across. Easy install using Pip

here is the link: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/geocoder/1.8.0

You can geocode with Google maps up to 2,000 addresses per 24 hours, sign up for a free API key with bing maps (geocode 125,000 addresses per year) or you can use OpenStreetMap or OSM to I believe geocode as much as you need. Its very simple to use

*Bing maps is the fastest and it more often than not geocode the location in a parcel as opposed to the middle of the street compared to google or osm
