How accurate is it, though? We actually tried something similar to that, and
when we started reviewing and sanity-checking its output, got maybe 50%
accuracy. Nearly 100% accurate in city areas, much lower for our rural
customers. I ended up having one of my techs basically re-do the whole thing
by hand over the course of a couple quiet Saturdays. At that time, we had
around 1000 addresses to geocode, so it was feasible, but it might not be so
for larger outfits.
