India's Megacities


Geocoding India Cities

We have a list of India's cities with population of 1 million or more population.  How to show these locations on a map?

The CommunityViewer FindAddress[batch] is an ideal tool for this task.  The list of addresses is simply placed into a text file.

Partial list example:

Mumbai, India

Delhi, India

Kolkata, India

Chennai, India

Bangalore, India

Hyderabad, India

Ahmedabad, India

The FindAddress[batch] is started and the text file name supplied.  The rest is automatic; a shapefile is created.

The resulting shapefile is added to a project (used to display next view).
