New Geocoding for European Countries
Yahoo Maps Added Recently added support for geocoding in Europe. Now you can geocode and get map coordinates for these countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Ireland, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, France, and Italy
It appears there is somewhat limited support for these countries: Albania, Bosnia/Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, The Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia/Montenegro, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Turkey
I’ve tried geocoding international addresses in these countries with our batch geocoder and it worked great! Just use the “State” field as a country when geocoding outside of the U.S. / Canada. Here’s a few addresses I tried and got back street block level coordinates:
However it should work for all countries listed above. Please test this with your own data and post back your findings here.
