What are the data requirements to get started?

We need a properly formatted list in CSV, DBF, XLS or XLM with tab-delimited fields. Make sure to include control or ID numbers on each record. Please make sure your data is accurate since we can only provide maps for valid addresses. We can only geocode street addresses. PO Boxes are not street addresses.

Where is the map data from?

We use HERE maps (Former NOKIA and NAVTEQ) as our data source and the HERE platform for geocoding and routing. You can verify accuracy on Here.com.
