DOTS Address Geocode - International

Translate Global Addresses to Precise Geo-Coordinates

Our Address Geocode – International service enhances risk assessment and shipping logistics by delivering more than just an address. It offers precise rooftop longitude and latitude coordinates globally, ensuring pinpoint accuracy for any location worldwide.

Address Geocode – International

Address Geocode – International is an integral component of our product suite, designed to elevate the precision of your location data. It works by cross-referencing your provided addresses with authoritative global data sets, resulting in the delivery of highly accurate rooftop-level geo-coordinates for nearly any location worldwide.

This service encompasses two key features:

  • Geo-location: This functionality converts any global address into its corresponding latitude and longitude coordinates, expressed in decimal degrees. It’s an essential tool for mapping and spatial analysis.
  • Reverse Geo-location: Inversely, this feature takes latitude and longitude coordinates and accurately translates them back into a detailed address, formatted according to the specific postal conventions of the relevant country.

Together, these features ensure comprehensive and precise geo-spatial data handling for various applications, from logistics to analytics.
