    Convert Postcodes to Map Reference or Longitude / Latitude

    Hi All,

    i have a list of over 400 addresses which i need to put onto a map. Fusion tables seems my best option unless someone can recommend something different?

    I have full postcode for each address but need to convert these into map reference or longitude/latitude. It needs to be down to the full postcode and not just the outcode i.e WV13 2NX not just WV13.

    Anyone got any suggestions? the only web based programmes i can find will only let me do one address at a time, and i dont fancy putting 445 addresses in!!!

    I've attached an example of what i mean.

    Thanks for all your help

    Karl

    Hi Marcol - thanks for reply, without sounding like a cheapskate i was hoping not to have to buy any software for this as its probably something i will never have to do again

    thanks,

    Check the site thoroughly, they have many free downloads.

    You might have to subscribe to the site, but again that's free.

    I seem to remember a .csv file that might do your job, but exactly where I can't remember.

    Try searching here.
