So what are the best geocoding services available?

Hello everyone,,

We are looking to geocode 250,000 address points for an upcoming project. So far I have looked into:

  • Texas A&M Geocoding Services, which broke down to about $375
  • ESRI (40 credits per 1000 addresses) would require us to purchase 10,000 credits at a rate of 100$ per 1000 credits, so that would be 1000$. They are pretty much ruled out unless anyone can offer up a compelling reason to use them.
  • Google: .50/1000= 125$
  • GeoCodio: 123.75 for 250k addresses.

Google and GeoCodio are definitely within the budget but I don't know of any inherent advantages of choosing one over the other. If anyone has any suggestions (not just limited to this list. I'm open to using other sources) I would appreciate it!
