GeoTagger for ArcGIS Desktop 10

Geotagging text from an English web page  Geotagging text from an Arabic web page

Have you ever wanted to extract geographic locations from an email or web page? This is now possible with the free GeoTagger AddIn for ArcGIS Desktop 10 published by the Applications Prototype Lab. The AddIn uses MetaCarta’s public geotagging web service to extract geographic references from text. The service supports English, Russian, Spanish and Arabic.

The AddIn is available here from ESRI’s ArcGIS Resource Center.  The download page includes usage and installation instructions.  Source code is bundled with the download.


  1. I came across this AddIn through the Applications Prototype Lab Blog, and am interested in trying it, however I cannot get through to the download page. Does this AddIn still exist?

    Many thanks,
