Geocode Dataflow API

Bing

Before using this API, make sure you are aware of the Geocode and Data Source Limits.

About data schema versions: There are two versions of the input and output data schema for this API. The latest data schema (version 2.0) provides additional geocoding information in the response, such as different points for routing and display and a rectangular area that bounds the location. If you are a new user, version 2.0 is recommended because it provides the greatest flexibility. Version 1.0 users can upgrade to version 2.0, but must be aware of the changes in the data schema including some name changes that were made to match the REST Services Locations API.

The Geocode Dataflow API uses REST URLS to geocode and reverse-geocode large sets of spatial data. To use this API, you must:

  1. Format your location data using the Geocode Dataflow Data Schema - Version 2.0 or Geocode Dataflow Data Schema - Version 1.0 (for existing users). The spatial data you upload can be in XML format, or it can be provided as sets of values that use commas, tabs, or pipe (|) characters to separate the values.

  2. Create a Geocode Job and Upload Data

  3. Get Status of a Geocode Job and watch for the job to complete.

  4. Download Geocode Job Results

For an overview of this process, see Geocode Dataflow Walkthrough.

To get a list of all geocode dataflow jobs and data source jobs submitted in the last 15 days, see Get Job List.
