This workgroup was officially sunsetted 12/2/15
The Geocoding Workgroup was tasked with recommending an “approved state geocode model”, likely in the form of a service that would enable the translation of addresses or intersections into points on a map. A statewide geocoding function has been identified as one of several strategic investments for MnGeo (Final Program Design Report, sections 4.9, 5.2.3, and 6.2). The workgroup, formed May 2010, worked on addressing this need, building on the findings of the MetroGIS Geocoder Project.
Update for State Agencies (October 2014): MnGeo now supports a secure geocoding
service for use by state agencies. Questions about the service can be directed
