Batch geocoder with CSV output

Geocoding a list of addresses as a batch can be done faster than some times ago. Still you cannot send a bunch of geocode requests by GClientGeocoder at one moment. They must be done one by one. Just wait that the former request is answered before you send a new one.

This is a batch geocoder page that takes a line feed separated list of addresses. Many address lists don't contain country or state names if they are constant. There are even lists without town mentioned. Those missing constant names can be added in the [extension] field of the page.

Paste your address list and hit [geocode]. The geocoded coordinates will be listed on output field and corresponding markers are placed on map. Non-found addresses will be listed on error report field.

How do you output this to make a map with these locations?

Hello,

We are developing a batch geocoding software that handles this much easier. You can find more information at geocoderpro.com.

It doesn't leave markers on the page?
