Geocoding is the first and most important step in making sense of location information. It helps you convert your addresses and place-names into coordinates and put them on a map.

Worldwide coverage

Get address-level coverage for over 149 countries in the key markets of the world and place-level coverage, including landmarks and cities, for the rest of the world.

Highly accurate

Get the most precise, accurate, and reliable results. The geocoding engine will look for the best available match level, rooftop or parcel, and automatically cascade to the next best level.

Local languages and address formats

Map your global addresses accurately. ArcGIS World Geocoding Service handles addresses in local alphabets and languages, Latin and non-Latin characters, translation and transliteration, and local address formats.


Your geocoded coordinates are licensed to keep and use within your enterprise.

Best reference data

Use the most up-to-date reference data from authoritative sources, including community, commercial and governmental providers. Esri also works with international distributors and partners in countries with complex addressing systems.

Find points-of-interest and more

We have you covered­—whether you’re looking for a Bank or Starbucks in an area, the Golden Gate Bridge or searching for the Eiffel Tower by its French name, Tour Eiffel. Locate millions of businesses, landmarks, and other points of interest using English or your local language.
