Geocoded Addressing

An address is a structured label—usually containing a property number, a road name and a locality name—used to identify a plot of land, a building or part of a building, or some other construction. Geocoded addressing is the process of associating an address with coordinates such as a latitude and longitude to enable it to be readily mapped and related to other spatial data
