Leveraging Google Maps Platform’s Address Validation API within Google Sheets

Posted by

Managing and updating your customers’ or prospects’ addresses can be challenging. Typos, incomplete information, or inconsistent formatting can wreak havoc on your data analysis. But fear not—there’s a powerful solution: Google Maps Platform’s  Address Validation API. 

Google’s Address Validation API can be helpful in several ways: 

Improving data accuracy: Google’s Address Validation API can help reduce errors in your data by verifying that addresses are real and correctly formatted. This can be important for shipping, billing, and marketing tasks. Google’s Address Validation API verifies addresses against Google’s comprehensive database. For addresses in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, you can even enable the United States Postal Service’s Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS) to verify your addresses.

Enhancing user experience: If you collect addresses on your website or app, Google’s Address Validation API can help ensure that users enter their information correctly, saving them time and frustration.

Standardizing Addresses: Google’s Address validation API is a game-changer when it comes to standardizing addresses into a common format. This feature is particularly beneficial for tasks like data analysis and reporting, making your job easier and more efficient.

Suppose you maintain your data in a tabular file such as CSV. By using a spreadsheet application such as Google Sheets in conjunction with Google’s Address Validation API, you can easily validate and standardize your addresses in a no-code environment. 

There are many types of organizations that can benefit from Google’s Address Validation API, for example: 

  • An e-commerce company that needs to confirm the shipping addresses of their customers to reduce the number of failed deliveries and improve customer satisfaction. 
  • A financial institution that must verify billing addresses of their customers to prevent fraud. 
  • A marketing agency that must ensure that their mailing lists are accurate to improve the effectiveness of their campaigns. 


Don’t let messy addresses hold you back. By harnessing the power of Google Address Validation API with Google Sheets, you can ensure data accuracy, streamline workflows, and boost your overall productivity.
