USgeocoder is a customized Geographic Information System (GIS) web application integrating data from various resources provided by the government. One of them is the US Census TIGER data file provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. When receiving a street address and 5 digital zip code for a particular location, USgeocoder geocodes the location, looks for the above information from the US Census database and returns to your application. USgeocoder can also produce census geographies by geocodes (latitude and longitude) directly.
