QuickLocate address geocoding

QuickLocate is a geocoding tool that converts street address information into a geographic coordinate (latitude and longitude).

The tool also cleans and corrects address data during the geocoding process – amending spelling errors and confirming correct postcode details.

When geocoding against our enhanced Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF) data set, QuickLocate is able to verify whether an address actually exists within the G-NAF database.

QuickLocate can also perform boundary tagging – turning any geographic boundary data set (census districts, electoral regions, flood zones, etc.) into a boundary file, which can then be tagged its relevant identifier.

The QuickLocate geocoding tool is being successfully used in the financial, retail and public sectors – amongst others – helping organisations:

  • Perform risk assessment
  • Conduct customer profiling
  • Provide community services, and more

QuickLocate is also available as a Web Service and desktop application

Featured as part of the MapData Services API Suite, QuickLocate Web Service provides organisations with a cost-effective option where only completed geocodes are paid for.

And because revised spatial databases are immediately available on MapData Services’ geocoding servers, choosing a QuickLocate Web Service ensures your data is always up-to-date.

Meanwhile, the QuickLocate Desktop application is a standalone tool with the ability to calculate hundreds of geocodes a second. The application also accepts an unlimited number of addresses, and allows multiple inputs of address formats for geocoding.
