Because they are a form of geographic data, addresses can be brought into a GIS, visualized on a map, and analyzed in terms of their spatial relationships to other features. Geocoding is the process of assigning an x,y coordinate location to an address, and it is a fast way to create GIS data. This course teaches the process of geocoding using ArcGIS software.
