Github and CircleCI to POST data to Woosmap

Here at Woosmap we love to work with CircleCI, a Continuous Integration solution that aims to help developers “ship better code, faster”. This tutorial teaches you how to automate the task of importing data into Woosmap database using CircleCI and Github. It’s not the main goal of this tool as in this case, we’re not using it for continuous deployment and continuous integration but for continuous import and delivery to our end users. By doing so, we ease the availability of updated data on production.

Geocoding is the process of converting addresses (like a street address) into geographic coordinates (like latitude and longitude). With Woosmap you can request nearby location or display on a map a lot of geographic elements like stores or any other point of interest. To take advantages of these features, you first have to push geocoded locations to our system, as we discussed in this previous post. Most of the time, your dataset has addresses but no location information.
