What are geocoded addresses?

Geocoding (sometimes called forward geocoding) uses a description of a location, most typically a postal address or place name, to find geographic coordinates from spatial reference data such as building polygons, land parcels, street addresses, postal codes (e.g.ZIP codes, CEDEX), and so on.

How do I make sure my addresses are geocoded?
If the address is geocoded, it will have this symbol: 

When you type the address, use the automatically suggested map address from Google, as below.

if you copy and paste an address, sometimes you can back-type on the address to get it to geocode properly.
