With proprietary methods, USgeocoder uses the physical address to produce jurisdiction information, offering the best accuracy that can not be obtained via zip 5 or zip9 methods. We integrate the most up to date national database of elected officials in the U.S. with the geocodes and jurisdictions for an address.

USgeocoder API offers XML REST based communication style, the most direct way to integrate our web service into your web application. Following is the sample XML output for a Political Jurisdictions request:
