Route4Me Bulk Geocoder Tool

Route4Me route optimization software helps you to automatically geocode addresses, identifying the exact location of each address on the map. Aside from the built-in geocoder, Route4Me enables you to utilize geocoding solutions for those instances when you have to geocode hundreds of addresses simultaneously. The Route4Me Bulk Geocoder is a standalone desktop application that acquires latitude and longitude coordinates for a large number of addresses at the same time. It also adds the geocoded addresses to the Route4Me Address Book.


To geocode addresses in bulk, open the app by double-clicking the geocoder executable file, or right-click on it and select open.

The Geocoder supports .CSV files. Prepare a .CSV spreadsheet containing all the columns you want to include and make sure your file has a header row.

Your file needs to include address columns, which must contain the street name and number (in the Address column) and separate columns for City, State, and ZIP.

When the geocoding process is completed, the geocoder will display 5 additional columns: the latitude and longitude columns (lat, lng, curbside_lat, and curbside_lng) and a separate column for the geocoding confidence. Addresses that were geocoded with high confidence do not need to be reviewed. If the addresses were geocoded with low or medium confidence, you may need to verify and re-upload them, if the geocoded location is incorrect.

The geocoder will automatically add the addresses to your Route4Me Address Book.

It will also create a copy of your initial .CSV file, with the appended columns that resulted from the geocoding process: lat, lng, curbside_lat, curbside_lng, and confidence.
