Geocoding converts a street address or location into a set of geographic co-ordinates. Bing Maps provides three different types of geocoding: address geocoding, reverse geocoding, batch geocoding. Bing Maps Geocoding coverage is available in more than 100 countries.
- Reverse Geocoding allows you to retrieve the nearest address for given longitude and latitude coordinates.
- Batch Geocoding saves time and increases efficiency.
Bing Maps Rooftop offers the highest level of geocoding accuracy support. Instead of interpolated results, addresses are resolved to the latitude/longitude co-ordinate at the centre of the address parcel (property boundary) with high precision post code.
