Geocoding service by PTV: The basis for professional route planning

Geocoding service and reverse geocoding module.

The PTV xServer geocoding service is your base for efficient and professional transportation planning. It enables you to "translate" your postal addresses into geo-coordinates. With the PTV geocoding service, you can therefore display all your geographical locations on digital maps. Besides that, it is a key factor for further complex applications such as truck routing and route scheduling.

PTV Components: Geocoding and reverse geocoding combined

With the geocoding service by PTV, you can display your customer addresses, depots, points of interest (POIs) and many more on digital maps. Quick and accurate geocoding is also necessary for complex route planning tasks, such as location optimisation and route calculation. The geocoding service also enables reverse geocoding to convert geo-coordinates into postal addresses. All functions are realized via a geocoding API. The geocoding API works with the PTV xLocate Server and is based on JSON and SOAP.

PTV is your strong partner for the integration of geocoding into your software solution. No matter which countries or to what extent you wish to geocode data, with the PTV developer components, you will have sophisticated high-quality products. They have already been broadly implemented, for quick and accurate geocoding - from individual addresses to an entire address database.
