New Web-Based Location Data Tool for Geocoding
We are continuing to add to the breadth and scope of our CDXStreamer browser based tools available at cdxtech.com. A new Bulk Location Data Batch Report has been added that can perform forward and reverse geocoding.

This application works in a similar fashion to our Address Correction and Zip+4 tool.  The major difference in the tools is the Location tool can handle worldwide addresses whereas the Address tool only covers the US. Partial or “Fuzzy Information” such as just a street address can also be entered to return possible matches. You can also simply enter two columns with latitude and longitude for reverse geocoding.

To use the application upload an Excel (xlsx) file or csv file to the application and it will produce an output report covering the best match, latitude, longitude and other relevant address data.

The tool can handle up to 10,000 locations at one time and uses the HERE API as a data source. When the report is created you will receive a download link and an email receipt. Locations can be entered as complete or partial addresses, zip codes or geocodes. It will work for US or International locations, any country that HERE supports.

There is a $9.95 minimum report charge and it can be used with your CDXStreamer account for lower costs. Just a web browser is necessary to run the tool, no additional software is required.

You’ll find the tool is useful if you have just a one-time report requirement or if you need to deploy and this type of application to your entire workforce. A single CDXStreamer license covers an unlimited number of users. CDXStreamer is just billed on the number of requests and does not require a separate license as CDXZipStream does.

ACS Tract Data Update
The CDXZipStream Census Tract data feed with the latest information from the American Community Survey for the years 2015-2019. The feed includes all census tracts in both the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and covers a wide array of demographic data such as: age, individual earnings, educational attainment, household size, household income, housing value and rent, marital status, population, race, and school enrollment. Most of these where relevant are also provided by gender.

Since census tracts are on average about half the size of ZIP Codes, they offer a more precise demographic snapshot. A complete listing and description of each demographic variable is provided in the downloadable document CDXZipStream Data Feeds and Definitions .

The The census tract database is compatible with all demographic versions of CDXZipStream. It is a separate purchase priced at $149.95 and can be purchased in your cdxtech.com online account. Use the CDXZipStream menu "Buy Data Update" option. .
