Some tests of geo-localization with Google Maps and Batchgeo

28 juillet 2011

By a kind of laziness I was searching a program allowing me to save some time on the georeferencing process. So there are some maps I did with Batchgeo from a list of  TV and film producers (app. 290 enterprises); a list of TV channels (app. 430 channels); and a list of the malls of Istanbul (89 sites). The software is supposed to geolocalize automatically the enterprises from their addresses using Googlemaps and its algorithms... I'd confess I'm not very sure of the precision of the results but it spare a lot of time at the first glimpse, at least on the technical part of georeferencing.  I'm trying to improve the quality of the datas to get a better picture...

An interesting thing is you can also transform those datas from a Google Earth format (importing the .kml files) to GIS formats (.shp and the rest) through some tricks (visibles here and there), or using GvSIG to convert the kml files...
