Re: [WISPA] Addresses - Lat long?

2007-01-23 Thread Sam Tetherow
I've had good luck with Yahoo's Maps service. You have to signup to get 
an app id. The API is really simple. Here is a modified chunk of code 
from my Dept of Health and Human Services/Google Map mashup for showing 
licensed daycare centers in a town.


#!/usr/bin/perl
use LWP::UserAgent;
use XML::Simple;
use CGI::Simple;

my $location=107 W 2nd Street, Valentine, NE 69201;
my $q=new CGI::Simple;
my $safe_loc=$q-url_encode($location);
my 
$geocode_url=http://api.local.yahoo.com/MapsService/V1/geocode?appid=$APP_IDlocation=$safe;);

my $ua=LWP::UserAgent-new;
my $response=$ua-get($geocode_url);
if ($response-is_error) {
die $response-status_line;
}
my $xml=XMLin($response-content());
print $xml-{'Result'}-{'Latitude'}, $xml-{'Result'}-{'Longitude'}\n;

Anyone have a way to convert mass addresses into lat / long numbers ?

I have a spreadsheet of locations for a customer that I'd like to map in
Radio Mobile, and obviously need to do it via Lat/Long.

There are a bunch of ways to do this, the two easiest I would be:

geocoder.us

google maps and some programming

If you have Microsoft MapPoint you can convert this way.

Open/Import your Excel address spreadsheet inside MapPoint.

However, I seem to remember having an issue of getting the lat/long back
out. I believe that there was some freeware utility to extract the MapPoint
data back out of MapPoint. 


Thank you

Very nice, I've been looking for this. Is there any that you can do 
batches of addresses?
