  • What's the source for the X_Geocode data? The other sources I've seen for similar data in Australia have been expensive. Nothing in the list at data.australia.gov.au popped out at me as the source.

    • The geocoder I'm using is the Google one.

      • "You may use the HTTP geocoder to geocode addresses outside of your Google Maps API application so that they may be cached and later displayed using one of the Google Maps APIs, but locations obtained using the HTTP geocoder may not be used by any other application, distributed by other means, or resold."
        http://code.google.com/apis/maps/faq.html#geocoder_exists [google.com]
        What about the Cloudmade/OpenStreetMap geocoder [cloudmade.com]?
        • For the moment I'm ignoring this problem as a legal technicality, as all current known users are themselves displaying these locations on a map as per the requirements.

          I'm in reasonably regular contact with some people from the maps team (which is mostly run out of the Sydney office a few kilometres from my home). I'm quite sure issues can be resolved, and I won't be holding up development because of it.
