Hello everyone,

I am currently working on getting geocoding information that may be obtained from google in xml using the following command:

http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/xml?address=3595+cadillac+ave,+costa+mesa,+ca&sensor=true

Open in new window


Is there a way to execute the line in above in TSQL and get the results back as follows: (so I can save that to a table)

<GeocodeResponse>
	<status>OK</status>
	<result>
		<type>street_address</type>
		<formatted_address>3595 Cadillac Ave, Costa Mesa, CA 92626, USA</formatted_address>
		<address_component>
			<long_name>3595</long_name>
			<short_name>3595</short_name>
			<type>street_number</type>
		</address_component>
		<address_component>
			<long_name>Cadillac Ave</long_name>
			<short_name>Cadillac Ave</short_name>
			<type>route</type>
		</address_component>
		<address_component>
			<long_name>Costa Mesa</long_name>
			<short_name>Costa Mesa</short_name>
			<type>locality</type>
			<type>political</type>
		</address_component>
		<address_component>
			<long_name>Orange</long_name>
			<short_name>Orange</short_name>
			<type>administrative_area_level_2</type>
			<type>political</type>
		</address_component>
		<address_component>
			<long_name>California</long_name>
			<short_name>CA</short_name>
			<type>administrative_area_level_1</type>
			<type>political</type>
		</address_component>
		<address_component>
			<long_name>United States</long_name>
			<short_name>US</short_name>
			<type>country</type>
			<type>political</type>
		</address_component>
		<address_component>
			<long_name>92626</long_name>
			<short_name>92626</short_name>
			<type>postal_code</type>
		</address_component>
		<geometry>
			<Location>
				<lat>33.7001816</lat>
				<lng>-117.9295300</lng>
			</Location>
			<Location_type>ROOFTOP</Location_type>
			<viewport>
				<southwest>
					<lat>33.6988326</lat>
					<lng>-117.9308790</lng>

You could store it in a XML type data column or use XML SQL commands like FOR XML and OPENXML to read it in format you want.

And you can run the http:// above in a SQL CLR stored proc since SQL 2005 and up - here's an example:

Hi LCohan,
I have been reading the article and it is a very interesting piece.
Currently building the visual studio c# DLL.  Although, this example is for the city, state, county, I would like to see if I can alter this and add the street address as well.  After all, that is my project.

Going to discuss this with my boss and then take it from there today.
It looks like a promising code.
Will get back to you shortly.
thx
