Endlich, darauf habe ich eine Weile gewartet: Geocoding in der erweiterten Google-Maps-API

Geocoding is the process of converting addresses (like "1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA") into geographic coodinates (like latitude 37.423021 and longitude -122.083739), which you can use to place markers or position the map based on street addresses in your database or addresses supplied by users. The Google Maps API includes a geocoder that can be accessed via HTTP request or directly from within the JavaScript.
