Batch Conversions of Address to Latitude/Longitude (Forward Geocoding)
The web site below allows you to paste in a list of addresses or locations and it automatically generates the lat/lons.

This would be useful if you found a website with a list places of interest but you couldn't find a POI file.

For example, if you enter Pau, France it responds with

43.29655, -0.374289

If you enter these coords in AutoRoute it drops you at the main square in Pau.

pau, france
antibes, france
paris, france


43.29655, -0.374289
43.58015, 7.121235
48.85693, 2.3412

That site is really useful for anyone who regularly goes to a bunch of addresses. I used it to set up routing for a friend who does lawn care in the summer and snow removal in the winter. Both require quite a bit of driving around from customer to customer so it was worthwhile finding an optimized route.
