Also, using the above tool to pre-process the data (or not), you can easily put together a Google Earth map utilizing a method I detailed on the excellent LDS Clerks wiki. Google Earth is free software for easily visualizing geographic information in 3D.

Also, I have found the process to be very accurate, typically within a block of its actual location, at least where I am in the Southeastern United States.
If you know of an error free geocoding method, I'm all ears!

When I first managed to load it, I was able to also see the locations on Google Maps. But now when I go to "Show in Google Maps" i get only a map of the area with none of the locations noted. Google Earth is wonderful, but I can't figure out how to show the street names that you get with Maps. I am very new at this type of thing, so I have probably missed something very simple...
