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".

Explore Michigan Art Museums; Batch Geocoded Interactive Map

Michigan Art Museums with Geocoded Interactive Pin Map

Michigan is a state of wide interest and culture. High tech urban areas and remote peaceful areas of natural wonder.  A rich history that reaches far back before the settlement of Europeans, the Native Americans inhabited this area since the recession of the last ice age. Along with all of these, a foundation of each culture has been to leave their mark in the form of art. If you are fortunate enough to tour the State of Michigan and its many wonders, both natural and man-made, consider taking time to relax and reflect in any one of the many fine art museums throughout the state.  A geocoded interactive pin map of the most popular museums is provided here to help you plan your exploration.

Hospitals in Upper Peninsula of Michigan

Geocode an Excel file of addresses for Hospitals in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan, also known as “God’s Country”, for its clean water and air, natural beauty, warm and hospitable inhabitants, and their laid-back pace of life. Yes, there is so much to do and explore that this article cannot begin to do it justice, but one thing you will need to be informed of is staying safe and healthy. Things can get a bit remote at times in theUP and it’s a good idea to have some emergency preparations and first aid and an awareness of how to find the nearest hospital.

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.

How to Geocode a Large File?

From time to time, you may be required to geocode an exceptionally large file. This isn’t as complicated as you may think, but it still requires a lot of work. To geocode process a huge batch file of addressed, for example, hundreds of thousands or in millions of addresses can be a processing challenge. In this case, file size and the clean, efficient management of the data input and output matters plenty.

How to Get Latitude & Longitude Coordinates of a Batch Address Files for Free?

Whether you manage a small business, or a local government function, often you may need to obtain latitude and longitude GPS coordinates from postal addresses. Obtaining that data quickly and with great accuracy is important. Imagine if local agencies need location data for violent or narcotic crime activities. Location GPS data could be invaluable to multiple social and policing agencies working to prevent repeated criminal activity by locating the “hotspots” and help them save lives.

What Components Are Necessary When Geocoding a Batch of Addresses?

There is no historical data telling us when we first used written addresses, but presumably it was long ago. Today, addresses including latitude and longitude coordinates are an essential part of our life. Location driven searches account for at least 20% of all traffic on the internet. Millions of addresses are geocoded daily and the majority of those are done with batch geocoding tools. However, only very experienced geocoders appreciate how address components are used during the geocoding. Today, we will go over the specific details of how best to choose address components necessary to perform well executed batch geocoding.
