Trying to map address level data can be a tedious job. Luckily, we have discovered a snazzy little app called BatchGeo which takes any .csv file with address data and adds two columns for Latitude and Longitude. Don't believe it? Take
this file, open it, copy the contents, and then paste them into BatchGeo. Click "Map Now" and your locations will be mapped. You can grab the output .csv from the bottom of the page. Then, make a cool Seattle area tourist attraction viz like the one below.
I could have spent hours hand geocoding the hundreds of locations in this database. Although BatchGeo takes about five seconds per address, I estimate that I saved about two and a half hours over hand geocoding.
