Google Earth and gCensus – Geocoding on Steroids

I’ve played with geocoding tools and software at various times in the past for different projects. I remember an enormous amount of effort going into writing data processing routines and pretty much every detail being more involved than I originally anticipated…yeah, yeah, I know. That’s software development right?

 Anyway, recent open source projects have brought open-source geocoding efforts to a whole new level. For example, the development of tools like Google Earth have enabled the development of cool new projects like gCensus. While there are a few rough edges to this tool, it has potential and adds a whole new dimension to geocoding. Now where did put that census data?
