The above maps of all McDonald’s and Burger King restaurants within the City of Richmond, Henrico County, and Chesterfield County, Virginia, were constructed using geocoding. Geocoding is a method that allows one to create a composite address locator within ArcGIS, which uses a centerline “edges” file (a roads polygon file that contains a set of addresses or an address range) to plot particular locations. An excel spreadsheet with the address of each point to be plotted is inserted into the locator, and candidates for the locations are displayed.
