Frequently Asked Questions


What is (forward) geocoding?

A geocode is the latitude and longitude coordinates of a physical address. “Rooftop” geocoding indicates that the returned geocode coordinates will point to the actual rooftop of an address. Other geocoding providers may give you an estimated geocode for the center of a property—possibly a long way from the actual roof of the building. SmartyStreets' US Rooftop Geocoding gives you true rooftop geocodes.

What is reverse geocoding?

Reverse geocoding is the process of finding the nearest address or addresses to a set of latitude and longitude coordinates. In addition to geocoding, SmartyStreets offers a hyper-fast reverse geocoding API.

What is the purpose of geocoding?

Geocoding unlocks hidden value from your address data. For example, what insurance risks does an address have nearby? What specific service area is it in? The more precise your geocodes are, the more you can reduce costs, and increase profits.

How do I get a geocode for an address?

US Rooftop Geocoding is coupled with SmartyStreets’ US Street Address API. You can check out how it works by trying out the demo above. More detailed instructions on how US Rooftop Geocoding works can be found in our helpful documentation.

How accurate is SmartyStreets' rooftop geocoding?

The majority of addresses will be accurate to the building footprint level. In cases where multiple addresses are located within the same building, our geocoder will frequently be accurate at the sub-building level—meaning we can help you identify individual shops in a strip mall, or precisely locate each office in a business park. To learn more, visit our article on geocoding accuracy.

Can I save geocodes?

Yes, saving geocodes is an available option. These geocoded addresses can be used in other applications within your organization for as long as you are a SmartyStreets geocoding customer. Contact our Sales team for more information.

How often are your geocodes updated?

We collect location data from thousands of local authoritative sources and update our database continuously. That data is also conflated monthly with US Postal Service Data.

How does US Rooftop Geocoding deal with false positives?

Many other geocoding services produce an unacceptable amount of false positives. False positives can lead to costly mistakes and misinformed business decisions. US Rooftop Geocoding from SmartyStreets is coupled with our highly accurate address validation systems. It greatly reduces the number of false positives in your data by marking them as invalid. By using US Rooftop Geocoding, you can make the best decisions using accurate data.
