How Do Route4Me’s Geocoding and Address Validation Work?

Route4Me’s geocoding and address validation enable you to use only valid and the most accurate addresses and location coordinates for planning and optimizing your routes.


Web Platform Address Geocoder and Location Validator

When you input any coordinates or addresses into Route4Me, the system geocodes and validates each address automatically and provides adjustable results.

Location Geocoding is the process of determining the latitude and longitude coordinates of a location. Address Validation is the process of determining the validity and accuracy of the given address. Both processes are executed concurrently in the following way:

  1. You add or import addresses or coordinates into Route4Me.
  2. Route4Me geocodes each location and address and shows them on the map.
  3. After geocoding, Route4Me validates the geocoded addresses and locations.
  4. If available, Route4Me suggests multiple options of valid addresses based on the geocoding results.
  5. The system shows the geocoding confidence of each validated address.

Equally important, Route4Me enables you to use parts of addresses, incorrect addresses, addresses with a missing zip code, etc. Our geocoder and address validator will automatically correct and complete and validate such addresses. Additionally, if there are addresses that have an invalid street name, Route4Me will automatically find and show all possible valid alternatives.

Route Planner Apps Geocoding and Address Validation

Additionally, Route4Me’s iOS Route Planner and Android Route Planner apps also support high-quality location geocoding and validation. Both apps are capable of geocoding and validating all types of incorrect, incomplete, etc., locations and addresses.

When you add addresses to routes on our mobile route planners, the apps automatically geocode them and suggest multiple validated options. Furthermore, apps display geocoded and validate addresses on the map.

Mobile route planner app can geocode and validate addresses for route planning and optimization.


Routing Non-Geocodable Addresses and Locations

Furthermore, Route4Me’s geocoding and address validation enable you to work with non-geocodable addresses and locations. Non-geocodable or non-established addresses are the locations on the map that don’t have an address yet. For example, it can be a new building, a building in an unmapped area, etc.

With Route4Me, you can select any location on the interactive map and add it to your Address Book or straight into a route right from the map. Route4Me will automatically geocode it and use the validated latitude and longitude coordinates.
