Abstract
Geocoding process of unstructured or poor quality location addresses requires human supervision in order to obtain valuable data. Current availability of geocoding web-service technologies, enabling the deployment of collaborative applications and the existence of volunteering communities, has motivated the proposal of a platform to generate geocoding collaborative tasks relying on the available solutions in order to get accurate results in short-term. In this work we present the design and development of a tool that facilitates to volunteers the geocoding process. We implement some strategies to give the volunteers elaborated information about web-service geocoding results and the capacity to propose other positions different than those suggested. All the information is registered in database model to enable later analysis or accuracy studies.
