Geocoding is the process of transforming a description of a location such as an address, or a name of a place to a location on the earth’s surface. You can geocode by entering one location description at a time or by providing many of them at once in a table. The resulting output is a location feature with attributes, which can be used for mapping or spatial analysis. With geocoded addresses, you can spatially display the address locations as a points in ArcMap, which help user recognize patterns by using some of the analysis tools available with ArcGIS.
