BatchGeoCode - Convert Addresses into Placemarks for Google Earth
BatchGeoCode,com is an easy-to-use free web-based application for converting a file of addresses (and other information) into either a Yahoo Map, and now also into a Google Earth KML file. The program does a lookup for the addresses you provide and converts them into latitude/longitudes (it currently only works for addresses in the USA or Canada). With the GE capability, it generates placemarks with the converted data. You can then zoom into the satellite/aerial photos and see how close the converted address appears to the actual building. You will probably see some discrepencies (just like when you put an address into the GE search form). Most postal addresses do not convert to the actual building's location.
BatchGeoCode could be a useful tool for many things including business applications. The built-in example file is for a list of Apple Stores in New York. Here is the resulting KML file for the built-in example. The web interface is simple to use and it shows how you can even put details in your descriptions, including photos, in your batch file.
Google Earth Plus and Pro have similar capabilities built-in (with limitations to the number of entries you can import at a time). BatchGeoCode has no apparent limit, and works with the free GE. Thanks to the author Phillip Holmstrad for bringing this to my attention. He says he plans to do a Google Maps version as well. Good work Phillip! You can also look up a single address.
