I want to transform about 750 addresses into geocoded points. I´ve tried the plugins MMQGIS (Geocode) and Geopunt4Qgis but none of the things I´ve tried worked. Maybe its because the addresses are German or the table is not formatted correctly before I export it to a CSV file.

the table looks like this:


this is what I type in MMQGIS (the City is at the time a state, there is also no option for house numbers)


this is the error I get:

enter image description here

this is in Geopunt4Qgis (there is an option for house numbers but I don´t have the postal code)

Any solutions apart from QGIS are also welcome. Any ideas?

    Google recently this year changed their geocoding services. There is no longer free geocoding available from Google. See this question for more info: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/294733/…

  • there are not any other services? in MMQGIS for example you can also use OpenStreetMap

  • You can use the Nomatim service in MMQGIS but it is not as robust as Google's geocoder. Take a look at this question and maybe it will help you figure out if the problem is coming from how you scraped the data: stackoverflow.com/questions/17912307/u-ufeff-in-python-string.
