I am looking for an affordable geocoding option with the following criteria:

  • commercial use
  • <500$/month
  • allows to store LatLng results in my DB
  • house Number precision for Austria and Germany

The only options with sufficient coverage seem to be BING and Google. I have already received a quote from google for $11000/year for their cheapest commercial license and it would still not allow me to store the results.

Most other options that I am aware of are either not suitable for my area (e.g. mapquest) or are based on OSM which also lacks many house numbers where I need them.

It seems that I am pretty much out of luck and now i understand why google charges such ridiculous licensing fees... because they can.
