If you've had to place many addresses on a map before, you know how problematic bulk geocoding can be — technical issues, terms of service, fun, fun, fun! If you've never had the pleasure, don't worry, we'll show you how to happily (and correctly) geocode large sets of addresses. Learn how to use to turn rows of addresses into points on a map.

This session is good for: Anyone familiar with spreadsheets. No mapping experience necessary.
