    geocoding world wide cities

    Kathleen Foley

      I am trying to map the addresses of all our alumnae all over the world, at the city level, and I'm having trouble with Tableau not recognizing many of the smaller cities.  I have zip code level data but only for domestic addresses. 

       

      I have seen sites like geocodio and batch geocoding and am wondering if paying for a site like this to turn my country/state/city/zip data into latitude and longitude is the best (only?) way to go.  I have also never used a shapefile and am wondering if one already exists out there for all cities worldwide that I don't know about.  Any advice on how best to map to the city level worldwide would be appreciated.
