Since Google’s policy change that has dramatically increased their pricing, AND experiences a rise of requests for geocoding services. Geocoding is the process of transforming a postal address description to a geographic location. AND CEO Hugo van der Linde: “For years AND has provided premium quality geocoding. Of course, we are happy to see an increased demand for our geocoding services as a response to Google changing their pricing policy for heavy geocoding users and are committed to the highest level of uninterrupted service for our users.”
Geocoding by AND is based on the AND proprietary digital maps. The proprietary database of AND has street level data up-to house number levels for Canada, the United States and all Western European countries. The rest of the world is offered on neighborhood or city level.
