The World Geocoding service is a global locator that supports multiple levels of geocoding.
The World Geosearch and Geocoding services use the most recent commercial street data and provide address geocoding capabilities for over 100 countries and support world place-finding and points-of-interest (POI) capabilities. Use these services for
- Single and multi-line geosearch
- Place and POI geosearch
- Reverse geocoding
- Address geocoding
Geosearch services are available at no cost. You can locate an address, or find a place, feature, or point-of-interest. The search result is displayed on the map, but not stored for later use.
Geocoding services require an ArcGIS Online subscription. With these services you can convert an address to an x,y coordinate and append the result to an existing record in a database. You can also reverse geocode an x,y coordinate to get an address, and batch geocode large number of addresses. All geocoding results are stored for later use.
Add point-to-point and optimized routing capabilities to your ArcGIS projects.
The World Network Analysis services use the most recent commercial street data from NAVTEQ and provide point-to-point and multi-vehicle routing, closest facilities, and service area analysis for more than 100 countries.
To use the World Network Analysis services you need an ArcGIS Online subscription.
The geometry service supports a number of operations related to geometry.
The Geometry Task Service is a free service that developers can use in conjunction with ArcGIS APIs.
It contains utility methods which provide access to sophisticated and frequently used geometric operations, for example, buffer, project, and simplify geometry; calculate areas and lengths for geometry; and determine spatial relations and label points.
