The server upgrade was completed successfully. All systems functional. Thank you for your patience.
Server Upgrade On 9th June
|Posted on June 6th 2012|
We are upgrading our servers on the 9th of June. This should lead to faster batch geocoding for our users as well as increase the ability of our servers to handle multiple concurrent bulk geocoding processes. For a few hours you may not be able to upload any new files for geocoding. However any existing files will continue being geocoded and all completed jobs will be accessible
November database refresh
|Posted on Nov 25th 2011|
Performed another database refresh today. This should really help the geocoding rate increase above our average of 94%.
Fixed Mac OSX file issue
|Posted on Oct 1st 2011|
We have fixed the issue that many of our MAC customers faced while uploading the csv files. We are sorry that it took so long to discover and fix and apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.
Removal of Accuracy Choice while uploading
|Posted on June 21st 2011|
Latest system changes have made the accuracy fuzzy based and have therefore been removed as a choice while uploading. Each geocoded record will however continue to have an accuracy column in the updated file.
May database refresh
|Posted on May 13th 2011|
We perform a database refresh every 3 months. This May has been the largest refresh we have done. We now support many more addresses and you should start seeing a much better geocoding rate.
New Feature - Download geocoded file before payment
|Posted on March 31st 2011|
We got a lot of feedback, requesting for a way to see the format of the geocoded file before paying for the service. We have therefore implemented a new feature where you can upload a test file with 100 records and then download the geocoded file at no cost. If the file has more than 100 records, we geocode all the data - however we allow the download of only the first 100 records.

The maintenance has been completed successfully. All systems are up and running.
Maintenance from 4th March to 7th March
|Posted on February 27th 2011|
We are moving servers and will be performing maintenance tasks from the 4th to the 7th of March. During this period customers can upload their files for geocoding. However, the geocoding processes will start only after the maintenance is over. If you have uploaded your data file during this period, please note that the geocoding will be completed only after the 7th.
We still encourage our customers to upload their data files during this period as the geocoding is done on a first come basis and the queue might fill up if you wait for the 7th to upload your files.
|Posted on December 23rd 2010|
Team Bulk Geocoder will be vacationing from 24th to the 28th of December. Since the support staff will be out as well, our reply to emails may be a little slow. The servers and the geocoding process will however continue running as normal.
Happy Holidays to all.
|Posted on October 1st 2010|
We are starting a new upgrade cycle from the 4th of October. This should lead to faster batch geocoding for our users as well as increase the ability of our servers to handle multiple concurrent bulk geocoding processes. The cycle is expected to be completed by October 8th.
Changes To Verification Page
|Posted on September 6th 2010|
We have made changes to the verfication page based on feedback from customers. We now let the user choose to see only the records which were batch geocoded as well as the ones which were not. This would help customers verify whether there is any reason for the data to be not geocoded - maybe a mis matched column in the data file.
Goodbye 'Host your maps' Feature
|Posted on August 20th 2010|
We have decided to remove the Host your map feature from the website due to lack of interest shown. The feature was in Beta and we decided it would be better to focus all our energies on the core process of geocoding to make sure our customers continue having a brilliant user experience with out service.
New Feature - Choose Accuracy Level
|Posted on June 26th, 2010|
We have just released a new feature (rather update). Many thanks to Tim Bunce for his feedback which has led to this feature.
You can choose the level of accuracy that you require for the bulk geocoded records. The different levels from which can be chosen are City ,Zip, Street, Address and Building.
If you choose a level, we do not return any geocodes for levels below that. For e.g. If you choose Building level accuracy, only records that can be geocoded at the building level will be updated with the latitude/longitude pairs. The advantage for the users here is that they only pay for the records that they need. Another interesting add on to this feature is that if you geocode at Building level and find that not enough records have been geocoded, you can ask for the geocoding to be restarted at a lower level.
You can also choose to have an additional column appended to the output file which states the level of accuracy found for the particular record. This can be useful if you decided to geocode at a lower level and still want to know which records were geocoded at which level of accuracy.
We hope that this feature will add a lot of value to our customers.
New Feature - Host your own map
|Posted on June 19th, 2010|
We have released a new feature which allows you to host a map directly on your website. A lot of our customer's work revolves around creating a map for their websites and showing a large number of addresses on it. This should not be as much work as it currently is and we therefore pushed this feature out.
We use the most excellente MarkerClusterer by Xiaoxi to show thousands of records on a single map page. The map also has basic pagination so that the user can view all the records.
The way we envisage this to work for our customers is as follows - you have a database of a million address records that you have to show in a map. The records need to be geocoded before they can be shown on any map. You visit our site and upload the large data file. We geocode the data and return back the file. We also give you a link and html code to embed the map into your website. You can copy paste the simple html code into any page on your site and voila - your map is done !.
Do checkout the samples on our website.

We finally got a new and much cleaner design on the site, along with certain important pages. We decided to go with get satisfaction for the feedback and to create a community around bulkgeocoder.com.
Welcome to bulkgeocoder.com
|Posted on April 23rd, 2010|
Welcome to the bulkgeocoder.com new site - this new page will be about the features and updates for the bulkgeocoder.com batch geocoding service.
Bulkgeocoder.com is a batch geocoding software. Currently, using this service you can batch geocode addresses in bulk. A user can start the geocoding process by uploading her data file and mapping the relevant columns. The entire bulk geocoding process from here on is automated and when it is completed she is sent an email with the link to verify and download the file.
