Plotting Points on a Map

Recommended Posts

This is not specifically aGeocaching topic, but is related.

 

We are trying to plot on a map the location of all members of our congregation from street addresses. Does anyone know of a way to take a large set of addresses, then calculate the coordinates? If I have the coordinates, I know how to do it, but I don't know how to get the coordinates out of the addresses.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Just for the record - what you want to do is called Geocoding - lots of services out there do that if you search a bit. - one of the best is already linked above.

 

Just be aware that the Geocoding is not perfect - but usually close enough.
