Having the geographical information of data is undoubtedly the backbone of many research fields these days. Mixture of spatial data and non-spatial data could be used for many purposes. There are a lot of datasets consisting of addresses which needs to be converted to geolocations to be applicable for using in studies. In many domains, especially Public Health this simple conversion could be a lot more challenging that it sounds to be.
We are grateful to use Texas A&M geocoding service as a part of our project.
