Bing Geocode returns wrong longitude Latitude for a few addresses RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I used a python script by Eric M Huntley's "Batch Geocoding Script with GeoPy" from github to run the csv file to return Longitude and Lattitude from a list of 2700 addresses. I found that 4 of them had incorrect Long Lats. I double checked the addresses and used a long lat locator to find the correct Long Lat. I determined that Bing is returning the wrong data for those 4 addresses. How do I submit those errors to bing api so they can be fixed?

  • Hi Aborit,

    Do these same lat lon pairs also fail on Bing.com/maps?  If so, you can give feedback on that page with the details of the failure.

    Sincerely,

  • So I found issues with wrong addresses on two of them that the Bing website auto corrects.

    Two addresses Bing Maps could not find but I double check to make sure they are correct. Both are School addresses on Indian Reservations

    Baboquivari High School

    Indian Route 19 Mile marker 19.5, Topawa, AZ 85634

    Bing/maps "We couldn't find any matches for: (and the address listed above)" 

    first set is what the api returns, second set is what it should be.

    33.23406503 -111.6464655 32.1933 -112.234

    Blue Elementary School

    80 Turkey Creek Rd, Blue, AZ 85922

    Keeps putting me in Kentucky on website. And northern AZ with the api. First set is what is returned Second set is what it should be:

    35.66043835 -82.72263677 33.79807 -109.94582

  • Hi Aborit,

    The search for item one returns a different address than you have.  Try https://www.bing.com/search?q=baboquivari+high+school (Highway 86 Mile Post 115 5, Sells, AZ 85634) but when I go to the geocoordinate you provided I see no buildings there so not sure what to do with this one.

    Blue Elementary is a little more difficult to disambiguate but this website also shows a different address than you are using. See https://www.greatschools.org/arizona/greenlee-county/313-Blue-Elementary-School/ (80 Turkey Creek Road, Greenlee County, AZ 85922).  When I look at I do get Greenlee County Area code 85922 but there are no roads named Turkey Creek.  You will need to work with your local governing body to update mapping providers to show this road.  My assumption is that this address is actually incorrect based on the imagery I see here.

    Lastly, when I look at (33.79807 -109.94582) I get a completely different area code of 85901, Show Low AZ.  The closest building actually has an address of 3604 E Fork Rd, Show Low, AZ 85901, US.

    In all cases, the agency that runs these schools should be able to claim them at https://www.bingplaces.com/ or any other point of interest provider such as Yellow Pages or Yelp as examples

    Sincerely,
