How accurate is Reverse Geocoding?

Reverse geocoding accuracy is measured in terms of the level of address received from the geocoding service. For a given pair of coordinates, 

  • If the most precise part of the address is the street number or business name, it’s considered a ‘rooftop level address’. 
  • If the most precise part of the address is the street name, it's considered a ‘street level address’.

How to geocode a huge batch of addresses?

LocationIQ is an API-first platform. If you’re comfortable using the API, you can send multiple addresses concurrently. The number of concurrent API calls depends on your plan with us. The free plan allows you to query upto 2 API calls per second but we can scale all the way upto 30,000 API calls per second.
