Geocoding

Hello, reading the features of PipeDrive, I see that street addresses are somehow geocoded with Google Maps. This is great.

 

Are the Lat/Long exportable?

 

What I ultimately need to do is filter and prioritize Leads based on the distance between them.

 

I figured I would do this "offline" using another spatial mapping service where one uploads a batch of street addresses and gets Lat/Long in return, which I would then add as a custom field in my Organization Leads.

 

But if PipeDrive is already geocoding, can I export them?

    Following this as i'm interested in the answer too! Thanks Ben.

    It would be great if you could pull a list of contacts/leads based within a set radius of a location (for example one of our agency locations or the location of an event). I haven't found a way to do this yet.

    Hi Ben. I assign Lat/Long as custom fields and calculate distances so as do proximity related analysis between those points outside of Pipedrive. As a GIS professional it’s a little complicated but I do it everyday for customers. I didn’t see that type of capability exists inside Pipedrive. Other similar systems offer it but as best I can see for a hefty fee if at all.

    This is normally licenced data so I doubt it can be exported.  Try looking at https://www.loqate.com/en-gb/

    they sell geocoding and tend to be the resellers to all other users.

    By the way, the mobile app has a built in feature to find Deals or Persons "near me".  This is a great feature that I wish they would implement on the desktop version as well - and should be easy for them to do since they already do it on the mobile app. Something perhaps where you can choose a deal and find other deals nearby.

    Is it also possible to decide between customers or deal contancts in this feature?

    That would be great

    In the meantime I've been working with UpWork freelancers on a number of other projects and I found several GIS freelancers. I haven't kicked-off the project yet, but knowing this is useful, perhaps somebody can make a simple tool (I know there are a number of Excel formulae that can be run offline). Maybe one in Google Sheets that then can automatically amend a PipeDrive Lead based on the final calculations...

    Hi Ben,

    You could try a tool on Pipedrive Marketplace called Mapsly which can geocode your Leads based on the address field and then auto-save their coordinates back to your Pipedrive account or export as a CSV file.
