About Esri: Geocoding

Esri, the global market leader in geographic information system (GIS) software, offers the most powerful mapping and spatial analytics technology available.

The Esri World Geocoding Service converts an address or place name to latitude and longitude. For example, if you know the address of a business and want to put it on a map, you can use geocoding to find the coordinates.
