Open Source Geocoder

For those not familiar with the concept, Geocoding takes a human readable address and turns it into coordinates.


Project Purpose

The intention of this project is to work towards creation of open source software providing geocoding capability.

Design goals

Desired attributes:

  • Handle international addressing schemes (expected to be pluggable to support internationalization)
  • Library Coded in C (or C wrapper to C++)
  • Architected and designed for performance
  • Abstracted storage to allow for use of data from various sources e.g. shapefiles, RDBMS, others


Relevant Existing Open Source Technologies

  • SRC Geocoder
  • Geocoder.us
  • PostLBS


Target Licensing

  • Preference for a liberal license to encourage adoption by maximum number of technologies both proprietary and open source
