How to Geocode Addresses from Brazil

How to Geocode Addresses from Brazil?

Have you ever wondered how postal addresses are structured around the world?  Are they all the same or similar?  Is there a stable set of “rules” that you can rely on to help you understand for the purposes of your enterprise?  Wherever you grew-up, the system probably seems very straight-forward, reliable, and predictable.  We almost all take for granted the structure of an address when we mail something or use it on your cell phone to locate it and find a driving route.  You may think the same structure exists in other countries, even if you aren’t familiar with those places. To your surprise that is not always the case.  There are many variations in different regions and countries around the world based on their history and their modern efforts to put a rational structure in place to align with digital technology.  Let’s look at Brazil.

Bigfoot Sightings Map of Alaska Geocoded

Bigfoot Accounts in Alaska with Geocoded Interactive Pin Map

Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti, Abominable Snowman, etc. are all names given to describe some being or group of beings said to inhabit remote areas of North America.  Although descriptions, locations and accounts differ somewhat, most seem to share the common theme of as a large, hairy, muscular, bipedal man/ape-like creature between 6 and 9 feet tall covered in hair described as black, dark brown, or auburn.

Legends and accounts predate the names.  Historically, many cultures have accounts of giant larger-than-life, man-like creatures.  Most names are more description than name, along the lines of "wild man" or "hairy man", although other names described common actions said to have been witnessed,  perform, such as “clam eater” or “tree shaker”. Evidence of Bigfoot's existence is based on many personal accounts made with short videos, photos, sightings, large footprints left clearly in the soil, etc.  Enormous footprints have been found in the areas of these accounts, some measuring as large as 24 inches long and 8 inches wide, hence the name "Bigfoot".

How to Reverse Geocode Data from a Large GPS-IERS Data File?

Many people are familiar with geocoding in their everyday lives even if they don’t recognize it by name. For example, anyone using the Google Maps app to get driving directions is using geocoding. Today at least a quarter of all internet searches involve some type of mapped address as a result. It has become like the “bread and butter” of internet business. Latitude and longitude data provided by geocoded address results are considered quite normal. However, the term “geocoding” is not that popular and often creates confusion to the general population. Things get more complicated when we next mention “reverse batch geocoding” of files. Even more complicated yet when we discuss “reverse batch geocoding of exceptionally large files”.

How to Get Latitude and Longitude from Postal Address?

Find yourself needing latitude and longitude data such as Global Positioning System (GPS) or International Earth Reference System (IERS), given only postal addresses?  For a small few, you can simply use Google Maps, enter the address and in the URL bar Google provides the desired coordinates. That approach can work for a while with small data sets.  However, what about when the number of addresses grows?  You could become stuck with a tedious task you think could be automated.  You may believe there must be a better way.  And sure enough, you would be right.
