Address geocoding for better decisions

What are Address Geocoding and Rooftop Geocoding?

Address Geocoding is any process that converts addresses into geographic coordinates regardless of accuracy. Rooftop Geocoding is address geocoding that consistently identifies rooftops of parcels' primary structures. Some geocoders falsely imply rooftop accuracy, but Smarty's US Rooftop Geocoding provides true rooftop coordinates.

What is reverse geocoding?

Reverse Geocoding is the process of finding the nearest address or addresses to a set of latitude and longitude coordinates. In addition to geocoding, Smarty offers a hyper-fast reverse geocoding API.

What is the purpose of address geocoding?

Geocoding unlocks hidden value from your address data. For example, what insurance risks does an address have nearby? What specific service area is it in? The more precise your geocodes are, the more you can reduce costs, and increase profits.

How do I get a geocode for an address?

US Rooftop Geocoding is coupled with Smarty’ US Street Address API. You can check out how it works by trying out the demo above. More detailed instructions on how US Rooftop Geocoding works can be found in our helpful documentation.

How accurate is Smarty's rooftop geocoding?

The majority of addresses will be accurate to the building footprint level. In cases where multiple addresses are located within the same building, our geocoder will frequently be accurate at the sub-building level—meaning we can help you identify individual shops in a strip mall, or precisely locate each office in a business park. To learn more, visit our article on geocoding accuracy.

Can I save geocodes?

Yes, saving geocodes is an available option. These geocoded addresses can be used in other applications within your organization for as long as you are a Smarty geocoding customer. Contact our Sales team for more information.

How often are your geocodes updated?

We collect location data from thousands of local authoritative sources and update our database continuously. That data is also conflated monthly with US Postal Service Data.

How does US Rooftop Geocoding deal with false positives?

Many other geocoding services produce an unacceptable amount of false positives. False positives can lead to costly mistakes and misinformed business decisions. US Rooftop Geocoding from Smarty is coupled with our highly accurate address validation systems. It greatly reduces the number of false positives in your data by marking them as invalid. By using US Rooftop Geocoding, you can make the best decisions using accurate data.

How does your pricing compare to other geocoding services?

We offer premium address geocoding at prices that won’t bust your budget. Feel free to visit our pricing page and compare us with the competition. We offer hyper-accurate geocoding at mind-blowing speeds, and legendary support all at fixed prices.

Do you offer a geocoding API (Application Programming Interface)?

Yes, Smarty’s US Street API becomes our rooftop geocoding API with an active US Rooftop Geocoding subscription. Geocodes are available through our web tools, batch upload, and Command Line Interface.
