Project Description

We require someone with:
- Good ability to think laterally
- Great ability to ask questions and follow instructions
- Reasonable knowledge of Australia.
- Knowledge of Excel and Google Maps.
- A love of Maps and Mapping! :)

We have a list of approximately 570 locations.

These locations have the following information:
- Unique Identifier e.g. "123"
- Town or City Name e.g. "Cairns"
- Description of Location e.g. "Bobs General Store corner of Local Street A and Local Street B"

Sometimes the description of the location is very vague! e.g. "Petrol Station, Street name"

For each location we need this additional three pieces of information:

- Latitude
- Longitude
- Accuracy Score

You will not be able to be 100% accurate all the time. This is OK, no one could possibly be 100% accurate here. Therefore: In addition to finding Latitude and Longitude here we require you to add a "Accuracy" score for each record that rates your own accuracy.

A VERY complete brief is available for the winning bidder.

Please place your bid! And then in addition, prove that you have read and understood this brief by sending me a PM with the answer to this simple maths question: 5 + 7 = ? All bids without a PM containing the right answer will be ignored.

PLEASE NOTE: Google's automatic Geocoder WILL NOT WORK for most locations. These locations are often TOO SPECIFIC or TOO VAGUE for Google to automatically Geocode. This job can only be done manually. You must not use any automation, because automation will fail.


We're looking forward to finding an excellent mapping guy here! If you succeed at this project we will have a lot more work for you and we are happy to pay well for the job.

Good luck guys! :)
