Convert addresses to location, and vice versa

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.

Esri: Geocoding


The block requires one single string: the location to send to Esri for geocoding. From within the block, the Geocoding service is called and the response is sent back to the client. To learn more about Esri services and get your own API credentials, visit the ArcGIS for Developers homepage.


Publish message containing the location body to the esri_geocode_input channel.

    "text": "380 New York St, Redlands, CA"


The block appends the address location returned by the Esri Geocoding service into the message payload. Please refer to the Esri documentation for output field information.
