What is Geocoding

Before we can display your locations on the map in your store locator, our software has to convert each of your addresses into latitude and longitude coordinates. This process of converting addresses into map coordinates is called Geocoding.

This Geocoding process takes place after you have clicked on the green Import Locations button on the Store Import Preview page after uploading your Bulk Import file. For large numbers of locations, this can take a while. As a guideline, 1,000 locations usually takes around 10 minutes to complete geocoding.

You can check on your geocoding progress via the meter which will automatically appear in your admin console on the left hand side as shown below:

Once the geocoding process is complete, you'll be able to see all the locations that you've uploaded in your store locator.
