In the past few days I’ve been actively working on a new GeoCoding python plugin for the open source GIS software QGIS.
This new plugin allows a user to obtain geographic coordinates of a location knowing its address, the geocoding process is handled by Google webservices. Additionally, GeoCoding plugin allows “reverse geocoding”, i.e. to obtain an address, from the point coordinates (clic on the map canvas). All geocoded points are automatically added to a point layer.
You can find the new plugin on QGIS the 3rd parties repository.
