We are working on a project that is supposed to display a dynamic map of an address. The address is entered at the run-time by the user and up-front we don't know what the address is going to be. When the map is displayed, we need to display a marker where the address is.
As far as we know, we need the latitude and longitude of an address before we can call either the Google or Bing map APIs.
The question is: Is there a way to find out the latitude and longitude of an address?
P.S. We know that the Census has the latitude and longitude of all the zip codes but that wouldn't help in this particular case.
