I have a database of 192K addresses in a MS SQL Server 2000 database.  I need to find a way to build a package or software to automate the geocoding the the addresses currently and then also any new addresses.

Can anyone suggest a place to start?

Well, you can try to build the geocoding software yourself.  There are geocode databases such as the Tiger database that I think the Post Office sells.  But, this would be a major undertaking.

Alternatively, there are service providers who will geocode addresses for you, for a fee.  Once you have an account with them, you can write code to submit addresses for geocoding, then receive them back and update your database.

We used this company, though, I don't see references to geocoding on their home page...
