Not really sure what the solution to this one is, so I'm wondering if there's a tool other than BatchGeo that could help find the lat, long coordinates for a big list of cities. I'm trying to join 2006 Canadian census data to my 2001 Canadian census map, but I can't join the data since the Geographic Codes differ. I figure I'll have the same problem for 2011, so If you know of another fix, I'd be curious to hear it too.

Thanks in advance!

Do you have ArcMap? You can do a spatial join. I'm sure that's possible in other GIS programs too. Good luck.
