Event Details

Do you have a table with addresses that need to be geolocated? We have the workshop for you!

Address geocoding, while hugely important for a number of research projects, can be fraught with stumbling blocks. Among those are the characteristics  and format of addresses, different tools, constantly changing limitations on geocoding services, and questions of quality of the results.


In this workshop we will introduce you to the basics of geocoding. We will demonstrate different ways of performing geocoding and extensively discuss the pros and cons of the different approaches.

This is a hands-on workshop and we will provide the sample data and workstations for you to follow along. You should have some basic knowledge of ArGIS. Familiarity with some scripting (like Python or R) is helpful, but not required.

Students, researchers, faculty and scientists who regularly work with geospatial data are encouraged to attend this workshop. You will gain hands-on introductory experience with many geocoding packages and services available to you at Stanford and beyond.
