Looking for a way to geocode 1761 addresses in a .xls file. Free would be cool, but really cheap will probably have to do for now. the cheapest Ive found is .05 an address ($88), not too bad, but this will start to add up over time.

Anyone have a good resource for this?

Nate,

Have you tried Geocoder.us?

An alternative, depending on your plans and budget, is to get Manifold, either with the geocoding data or with MapPoint. It's a relatively cheap setup and works just fine.

If you know VB or VBA you can even write your own batch geocoder with just MapPoint.

If you are still in need after all this time, you could try the geocoder we've developed at USC - https://webgis.usc.edu - It's free, you just have to sign up. You would need to export to csv or an access db from your xls sheet though; it can't yet handle xls sheets directly. Alternatively, you could use the available API's directly from a script.

I've used http://www.batchgeocode.com/ from time to time. If you have your data in an Excel spreadhseet it is very easy to use.

Nate,

I recently used this website for a similar purpose. I had to manually put everything in Excel, but it was free.
