Converting Data into GeoData

Most data can be georeferenced and therefore placed on a map. There are many methods that depend on the data itself and the use to be given to it.
From 10 records to 50 Million records or more, there are automatic and semi-automatic processes to meet this challenge.
This is the beginning of any geographic analysis.

This can be done for any country, using any characters.


Address Parsing and Validation

The standardization of addresses (address parsing) is fundamental and is the first step to ensure the quality of various interactions with key elements of business processes: customers, points of sale, points of visit, etc.

GeoPoint offers services and solutions that ensure the quality of data they need at the level of:

  •     Address correction, normalization and validation
  •     Email validation
  •     Validating phone numbers
  •     Database Sexuation
  •     Geocoding: assigning coordinates to addresses
  •     DeduplicationFor Portugal and abroad.


Address geocoding and Postal Code / Zip coordinates

«Georeferencing means that the internal coordinate system of a map or aerial photo image can be related to a ground system of geographic coordinates… » in wikipedia

GeoPoint provides field Georeferencing services based on specialized equipment and Geographic Information Systems. Georreferencing is often mixed up with Geocoding.


Geocoding is the computational process of transforming a physical address description to a location on the Earth’s surface (spatial representation in numerical coordinates). Reverse geocoding, on the other hand, converts geographic coordinates to a description of a location, usually the name of a place or an addressable location. Geocoding relies on a computer representation of address points, the street / road network, together with postal and administrative boundaries.

The geographic coordinates representing locations often vary greatly in positional accuracy. Examples include building centroids, land parcel centroids, interpolated locations based on thoroughfare ranges, street segments centroids, postal code centroids (e.g. ZIP codes), and Administrative Boundary Centroids.

The accuracy level of a geocoding process depends on the quality of the reference information but mainly on the quality of the Data Base to be geocoded.
