What is Geocoding?
When geocoding, localizing or georeferencing, spatial information is assigned to a data set. Geocoding requires specific software also known as a geocoder. The geocoder uses intelligent software to search a reference database to find the most suitable and exact coordinate for each data record (e.g. address) and assigns it an X/Y coordinate. This allows addresses to be located and displayed on a map. The geocoder takes into account specific country and language characteristics during the localization process.
Geocoding is the basis for geomarketing. Only with the geocoding process are you able to display your addresses on a map as points or as geometric shapes for an entire area.

Geocoding in Practice
Use of Coordinates in Companies
Geocoding is the basis for numerous company applications. Geocoding allows you to localize your addresses and visualize them on the map. The localization of addresses is an important prerequisite for geomarketing analyses and Location Intelligence Applications. You see your addresses in a spatial context and gain a new, important perspective for your business decisions. This perspective can be decisive for your business success.
Your addresses from customer databases, your branch networks and service centers as well as the locations of the competition are shown on the map. You can use the data in many ways. In combination with other key figures or market data from your company, geocoded address data serves as the basis for numerous sales, expansion, service and marketing measures.
