What is a Geocoded Address?

Geocoding means to convert addresses, like those formatted as street addresses or postal addresses, into geographic coordinates in latitude and longitude using the Geographical information System (GIS) . This is useful in creating geofenced zones, as well as dispatching drivers. Alternatively, reverse geocoding is a term referring to the conversion of computer-friendly geographic coordinates back into a standard street-level address that is easier for users/readers to work with.
