1Unlimited Access means that your credits will never run out. It does not mean you can make an unlimited amount of calls to the API within a specified time frame. (Although we have a lot of computing capacity, it is not unlimited) For example, usage frequency above 10 requests per second per API key may be considered a denial of service attack. Use with care.

How to compare the accuracy of geocode.xyz with Google Maps and other providers: There is no independently accepted metric for comparing the accuracy of various geocoders. In theory, you need what is called "ground truth", i.e. verified locations with latitude,longitude. Then you can compare the verified location vs the one returned by a geocoding service.

In the absence of such a comparison tool, you can check locations you are familiar with on geocode.xyz, Google maps, etc; then compare the results. We have seen such comparisons provided by our clients, but we can not comment as we are obviously biased.

We can however provide concrete examples from clients who use our service to geocode locations that can not be found with Google Maps. Here is one example: 415 C'WEALTH AVE WEST Singapore. As of the time of writing you can not find it on Google Maps.

Generally geocode.xyz would work well on messy input due to its geoparsing engine - which is absent on the competitors we have evaluated.

Service Level Agreement (SLA) Our servers are on the AWS cloud with redundancy and failover, so we provide uptime guarantees for paying customers. Free users may be throttled at various usage loads (1 request per second is an universal limit on the free port, applicable to all free users combined).


If AWS goes down (as it has in the past) pretty much half of the internet goes down with it. Now that the AWS cloud has matured to the stage it is at, that possibility is very unlikely. We also have reduntant server clusters in geographically distinct AWS regions to further guard against that possibility. (Redundancy is guaranteed to paying users only).

Please follow us on twitter where we'll communicate in the event of any outage.
