Check valid or invalid address with Google Maps API
Posted on 2011-10-07
Our Student Management System feeds a third party bus routing system (Versatrans RP). Versatrans then takes the addresses and builds bus routes using geocoding. Campus clerks continually messup or misspell addresses (e.g. "18=9 Vic. Crclke" instead of the correct "189 Victory Circle") which of course causes the auto-build of routes to fail.
Can anyone point me in the direction of how to use Google Maps API or other webservice to grab addresses, assess them, and return TRUE if they're OK and FALSE if they're not?
