Is it possible to convert a street address to GPS coordinates?

Yes, the Utility Data Collection, Deed Calls Pro, Forester GPS GIS, Forester GPS GIS II, Farming GPS GIS, and Farming GPS GIS II apps provide a function called “Locate a point by address”. When you enter the street address of a house, the app will return the coordinates of the approximate location of the house. As the location of a house or building on a street is determined through an interpolation process, you are apt to get better results with addresses situated within a city rather than in a rural area.

The “Locate a point by address” function also provides an option for you to enter the coordinates of a point and have the app display that point on the screen.
