This app is our most user friendly geocoding client for geocoding *.csv files. It does not require a license or subscription to use and automatically downloads updates as soon as they are available to stay current and add new features.

A closer look

The API Client is a great tool for users who are not familiar with the programming languages to interact with the API directly and want a user friendly interface to geocode their files.

A few highlights we are proud of

  • No license is needed to use the client! It is download and go.
  • The client is cross-platform. It works on MacOS and Windows.
  • The client is evergreen. The app will automatically download updates as soon as they are available. Every time the application restarts, it will be the best, most recent version.
  • You only need to create one API key ever. Did your IP address change? No problem! Your access will not be interrupted.
  • API keys are validated before the geocoding task starts. The create a key, try to geocode, fail, read the error message, create a new key, succeed loop is broken!
