Batch Geocoder API Developer's Guide

Job

A job is a request against the Batch Geocoder API resource jobs. A batch geocoding job requires input data, which is a collection of street addresses, to be converted to geographic coordinates. The input data for a batch reverse geoocoding job is a set of locations that must be converted to street addresses. The locations are captured as pairs of geographic coordinates, latitude and longitude. (See also Input Data)

The API supports requests that allow you to monitor the status of a job (see Job Status) and to retrieve the output when a job is completed (Reading Batch Request Output).

Each type of request produces a synchronous response, but both monitoring of a job status and retrieval of the final output are asynchronous with regard to the initial job request.
