Geocoding is the process of assigning a location, in the form of coordinate values, to an address. This is done by comparing the descriptive location elements in the address (street name, number, etc.) to those present in the MAR. The MAR is a database of every address in the District of Columbia stored as a point.
*Please uninstall previous versions of the tool by navigating to Start →Programs → MAR Batch Geocoder → Uninstall MAR Batch Geocoder. Users may still continue to use Microsoft Access databases to geocode.
