Geocoding/Viewing DC Area Top 200 Businesses

Geocoding Washington DC Area Top 200 Businesses

CV is used to geocode the list of Washington Post (May 2009) top 200 businesses in the Washington, DC area.  The CV FindAddress[batch] is an ideal tool for this task. The list of addresses is simply placed into a text file. The resulting geocoded file is a shapefile that can be added as a layer (to a CV project) enabling viewing the locations on a map.  Partial list example:


601 E St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20049

Adventist HealthCare

1801 Research Blvd., Suite 400, Rockville, Md. 20850

Advisory Board

2445 M St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20037

AES Corp.

4300 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, Va. 22203

Ahold USA

Alion Science & Technology

1750 Tysons Blvd., Suite 1300, McLean, Va. 22102

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).
