8.7.2. Bing Geocoding

Using the Bing geocoder removes most of the configuration headache from the process of geocoding. In many cases, it is more up-to-date than files that you can obtain about the area that you are geocoding and it is certainly easier to configure.


If you are using the Bing geocoder, you need to have a valid Bing Maps key, which should be pasted into the Bing Maps Key (Optional) field in the Cartographica Preferences window.

Configuring Bing Geocoder

  1. Choose Tools  >  Geocoder Options…

  2. Select Bing Geocoder tab and click OK.

    You are now ready to geocoder in this map.
