Append precise rooftop latitude and longitude information to the U.S. and international street addresses that you have gathered in your mailing list, website, or other business contact-dependent process. Use these geo-coordinates with a mapping program to determine the distance between any two sites, pinpoint customer locations, or find the closest dealer to a customer. Use the tract and block numbers to link addresses to demographic information and valuable Census marketing data.
Melissa Data’s service provides the GeoPoints for 95% of all U.S. delivery addresses (business and residential). GeoPoints are the rooftop (delivery point) latitude and longitude coordinates for an address – the highest level of geocoding granularity available for precise location intelligence. We accomplish this by incorporating spatial data from multiple data sources – including TomTom and Navteq – a process called “conflation” which consolidates the dta and selects the best recorded point.
Our service also geocodes addresses for over 40 countries, assigning a latitude and longitude coordinate. Geocoding addresses provides users with the location information needed to make better decisions about market segmentation, sales clustering, logistics, risk exposure and tax jurisdictions. You can view the supported countries and the level of geocoding available (from locality to rooftop level) here.
