I frequently use MMQGIS Plugin (Geocode >> Geocode CSV with Google / OpenStreetMap) in QGIS 2.18.10 (64bit) to geocode adresses from a CSV file. In particular for Germany, but I would imagine this issue cuts across country borders.

My CSV file contains a seperate column with postcode information, but there is no field to input it in the dialog window. I need to use the postcode information for geocoding. Should I concatenate it with another field like City (for example - 10117 Berlin)? Does anyone know where to input the postcode?

Dialog window for MMQGIS Geocoding


Create a new field in Excel before bringing into QGIS.

Address & " " & Postcode

Or perhaps:

City & " " & Postcode

  • Thanks Heikki, I know I can do that, but to which field should I feed it? – Yanic Nov 23 '17 at 15:08

    I think it is just creating a single string to pass to the geocoder. So if you usually type an address as . 1 Main St, 10117, Berlin, Germany, I would do Postcode & " " & City. – HeikkiVesanto Nov 23 '17 at 15:40
