Using the updated geocoder enables you to visualize information on a map. In my consulting work, for example, I've mapped farmer's markets in Wards 7 and 8, small businesses in Ward 7, and nonprofits in Wards 7 and 8. Some of the maps have been shared online while others have been used internally to plan and organize.
The MAR Geocoder 4.0 can be used to map data from Microsoft Access and Excel. Download the DC MAR geocoder.
