Free Batch Geocoder & Alternatives

This online batch geocoder retrieves latitude and longitude of multiple adresses. It is based on OpenStreetMap API. Note that if a city name is misspelled or the address does not match the underlying OSM database, then OSM does not return geocodes, as it has no spelling correction/closest match algorithm.

Check postal codes for leading zeroes
If - for example - you notice German or French postal codes with only 4 digits only in your data instead of 5, then there is a leading zero issue/missing.
This issue is quickly caused in/by Excel if you have not set your postal code column to type "text". It then may cause geocoding problems.

* You may specify country and postal code only, or leave out street number. But the more correct address data provided, the more accurate the geocodes will be.
