Geocodio is based in Arlington, Virginia and launched in 2014. We believe you should be able to get your geocoding done fast, affordably, and easily.
We know first-hand how frustrating it can be to work with location data, and how most services out there don't make it easy to get the data you need. We created Geocodio because it was a service we needed ourselves, and that customer-first perspective is something that informs all of our decisions. Here is what we believe in:
- We are active partners with our customers. That is why you will get emails from us directly, asking about your experience. It is also why you will get one of the founders when you reach out for support. We actively want to hear your ideas for how we can improve.
- We make GIS easy for non-GIS people. Many services out there require a high level of technical skill and a lot of time to figure out how to use them to the point where only people with GIS degrees know how to use them. Or, they are re so expensive that only organizations with a full-time GIS analyst can justify the cost. We believe that spatial data is a crucial and revelatory piece of information for businesses and organizations of all sizes, and that it should be accessible to all.
- We eliminate hassles. We work to make our software as easy to use as possible, whether you're a developer and want a nice and simple API, or have a spreadsheet. We think you should be able to get the data you need all in one place -- in one format, with one set of terms, with one price. And after you get the data, we don't impose any restrictions on how you use it. Unlike most services, we're not going to stand over your shoulder and slap a bunch of restrictions on how you use it: whether that's limiting which maps you use it with or whether you can store it. That's a pain.
- We are here to make things easier for you. We're accountable to you, our customers. We're a company that has been funded by our customers from day one, and without our customers, we wouldn't have a company. So we'll always treat you fairly and honestly.
