OPENCAGEGEO: Stata module for forward and reverse geocoding using the OpenCage Geocoder API

Lars Zeigermann

Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: opencagegeo uses the OpenCage Data geocoding API to obtain geographic coordinates for addresses (forward geocoding) and to retrieve postal addresses from latitude longitude pairs (reverse geocoding). opencagegeo obtains its inputs from data in the memory and stores the results in a set of variables. It allows the user to geocode many locations. opencagegeoi is the immediate version of opencagegeo for geocoding a single address. In contrast to other geocoders in Stata (using Google Maps, MapQuest or Here Maps), OpenCage Data does not restrict the use of geocodes and explicitly permits data storage.
