The following is a guest blog post from Gigasheet

In the era of big data, managing and analyzing vast amounts of information can be a daunting task. Address matching is a common challenge faced by businesses and data analysts, particularly when dealing with large sets of location information. However, thanks to Gigasheet's innovative no-code enrichment capabilities, address matching problems can now be easily solved. By integrating with Placekey, Gigasheet empowers savvy spreadsheet users to leverage geospatial data seamlessly, bridging the gap between technical expertise and business insights.

Placekey: A Universal Standard for Address Data

Placekey’s free and universal standard identifier for physical places integrates seamlessly with Gigasheet via API. Placekey unlocks data analysis by joining location-based datasets through a unique identifier, enabling businesses to gain enhanced insights and make informed decisions. . By utilizing Placekey, Gigasheet opens up a world of possibilities for businesses to harness the power of spatial data.

No-Code Data Enrichment with Placekey

Traditionally, addressing matching problems have required the expertise of developers who possess specialized knowledge of geospatial and fuzzy matching techniques. This is because addresses come in different formats, ranging from structured addresses with standardized components to unstructured addresses with inconsistent or incomplete information. This inconsistency makes it difficult to establish a uniform method for matching addresses accurately, and the problem becomes even greater when operating at scale. Address matching is a time-consuming and error-prone task. 

Placekey’s API  offers a solution, and Gigasheet's no-code enrichment capabilities expand access beyond developers. Now the advanced address matching powers of Placekey are available to business users without coding backgrounds. This integration bridges the gap between software engineer and business users, empowering both groups to collaborate effectively on spatial big data projects.

As you can see in the video above, spreadsheet users can now leverage Gigasheet's Placekey enrichments to enhance their datasets with unique location identifiers. The identifiers can be used for data analysis that requires matching addresses, or merging disparate data sources based on location. 

Gigasheet's no-code data enrichment, in conjunction with Placekey's universal standard for physical places, is transforming the way address matching problems are tackled on big data sets. By eliminating the need for complex coding, individuals and organizations can unlock the potential of location data effortlessly.
