Does anyone know of how to get latitude and longitude for addresses? I'm looking for an application that I can download to my desktop due to privacy issues. I found tons of online geocoding sources.
It would be totally awesome if tableau would generate the latitude & longitude for an address rather than just zip, city, state, ... Or does it?
Try the drawing tool of Powertools. It's free and it does precisely that. I use it quite often, it's really useful.
You chose the map. Point the addresses and chose the type of file format to get the long and lat. See below.
