BatchGeo - Import a spreadsheet of addresses into Google Maps

Let's say you have a bunch of locations listed in a spreadsheet. Why do you have all these locations in a spreadsheet? I don't know. Maybe you're a serial killer and these are all your possible victims. Or maybe they're your friends and you want to see how many of them you can visit in a day. Whatever. It doesn't matter. The point is, you can get them all pinpointed on a Google Map, and even post that map on your web site!

Developer's ideas:

* Create a map - Copy directly from spreadsheet program such as Excel or the free Google Docs or OpenOffice Calc.
    * Multiple Destination Driving Directions - Locations are linked to Google Maps for driving directions ("Calculate Distance" option.)
    * Distance Calculator - Calculate the distance in miles or kilometers to several locations from a single address.
    * Satellite Photos - Addresses are linked to Google Maps for satellite photos and driving directions.
    * Make your own Google Earth KML - Quickly create KML files with your address data for 3D viewing data in Google Earth.
    * Get postal codes / zip codes - Retrieve postal or zip codes for a given address internationally.
    * Print a map - Make a printable map with your addresses on it.
    * Save a map - Create a map with your locations and associated data to a web page for later use.
    * Create a store locator - Map your store properties, and then link to them from your website.
    * Plot a list of real-estate property addresses on a map with photos to link from a web site or for emphasis in a presentation.
    * House Hunters - use a saved location map to keep a reference index of your favorite properties.
    * Get center coordinates (centroids) for a listing of zip codes, cities, or states.
    * For quick single address geocodes, zip code, city or state centroids use our Single Address Lookup Tool
    * Kids - you now have your own personal paper route mapper!
