DOTS Address Geocode - US
Translate any U.S. Address to
Precise Longitude and Latitude
Property-level match rate accuracy up to 99.8%
Combination of spatial and postal data returns precise geo-coordinates
Includes reverse-geocoding – translate geocoordinates to an address

DOTS Address Geocode - US is our real-time, geocoding API that translates US addresses into exact latitude and longitude coordinates expressed in decimal degrees (DD). The service also supports reverse-geocoding, using latitude and longitude coordinates to return an estimated physical address.

Leveraging our US address expertise, both addresses and geo-coordinates are validated using a combination of authoritative postal and spatial data to return pinpoint accuracy.

The US Census Bureau, TIGER®/Line file, USPS® ZIP+4 tables, and other proprietary databases, are also included to provide supplemental information, including the latest census tract, county codes (FIPS), block codes, as well as proximity to water.
