I have a table with 150 addresses. I would like to automaticly generate a point shapefile/PostGIS layer from all of them. Is that possible in any way or do I have to search for every single address to find its geographic location?
In qgis you can use the mmqgis plugin to geocode addresses.
How to use this plugin can be found here: http://michaelminn.com/linux/mmqgis in the chapter Geocode Tools
