Are you working with addresses that you’d like to turn into coordinates and match with political or civic data? Whether you’re working for a campaign, a newspaper, a non-profit, a public affairs effort, or even a non-political entity, you can easily turn addresses into latitude/longitude pairs (geocodes) and add political or civic data, all in one request. For example, you might...
- Have a national donor file and want to display a map of donors in particular Congressional districts
- Be working with a non-profit and need to get your volunteers’ school district information quickly and easily
- Be working on a state-level public affairs effort and need to know which state legislative districts your petition signatures are coming from
- Have volunteers signing up on your campaign’s website and want to store that data in your CRM as they sign up
With Geocodio, you can turn an address into a latitude/longitude pair and match it with Congressional districts, school districts, and/or state legislative districts at the same time. You can upload a spreadsheet, use our API for bulk requests (up to 10,000 records in one request), or use our API for transactional requests.
Unlike many other geocoding providers, there are no restrictions with regard to how you use the data you run through Geocodio. Most geocoding providers forbid you from storing the data in a CRM system or require you to display the data publicly on their branded map. Geocodio has absolutely zero restrictions, so you’re free to use the data as you wish. And since you can look up both the latitude/longitude coordinates and the political data with one request, you don’t need to use multiple providers. Plus. you can upload a spreadsheet, making it friendly for developers and non-developers alike.
There are many other uses for political and civic data. If you’re wondering whether Geocodio would be a fit for your needs, please email us directly.
The Workforce Development Institute makes linkages between policy makers, businesses, educational institutions, and other organizations across New York State to drive workforce and economic growth. They use Geocodio to normalize their address data and quickly gather key additional insights that help them tailor their analysis to each audience.
For example, a high school may want to know which businesses in their area are hiring CNC machinists or a Legislator may request data on job openings, in-demand skills, and workforce training in their district. From a data perspective, this means marrying address data to school districts, state legislative districts, Congressional districts, and Census data.
“Geocodio has allowed us to make marriages between data and discover new things. It’s simple, fast, and reliable at scale. It’s the Rosetta Stone of geographic data." — Eliot Cresswell, Policy Analyst
