Australia and New Zealand Get Geocoding

Wednesday, September 06, 2006 at 2:32:00 PM

Today we are pleased to announce that geocoding has launched for both Australia and New Zealand. What this means is that you can now convert specific Australian or New Zealand street addresses into latitude & longitude so you can plot them on a map. Go ahead and try it out on Google Maps.

We are looking forward to seeing a flood of creative mashups come out of Australia and New Zealand. There are already a lot of great examples out there in diverse areas such as real estate, adventure tracks and even Australian Footbal League stadiums. I personally can't wait to see the ski fields of New Zealand and the best beaches in Australia mashed up!
