Geocoding Place Names

Helps convert places names to longitude/latitude coordinates.

This add-in will go through a specified data table and check user-specified columns for location names or addresses. It will then check these places against internal data tables installed with the add-in or the online services of For example: say that you have a data table with American cities paired with some numerical data, and you want to view this information on a map with JMP. You can use this add-in to find latitude and longitude coordinates for each of the different cities, and then creating your map is rather easy.

Awesome! Saved me a bunch of time. I was about to do this in Excel, when I asked myself "I wonder if there is JSL for this at the user community?"



I'm having a little trouble with the geocoder add-in.  Is it expecting a certain format for the input text?  I have some addresses with unit/apt numbers, would this create a problem.

Thanks for posting this add-in.




Is anyone else having an issue with Georgia?  It found the country not the state.  I'm especially surprised because I set the search to custom and selected just USA and Canada.
