Use Ziptastic API to Forward Geocode a Zip Code into Locale Information

The Ziptastic Forward Geocoding API provides an endpoint that returns the City, State, Country and other locale information of a zip code you supply, also known as Forward Geocoding. This frictionless access to accurate geographic data allows you to bring more understanding to your enriched data in Gigasheet.

Step 3. In this screen we see a preview of the results. Gigasheet makes requests for the first three rows and shows the Ziptastic API response. At this point select the fields you want to be inserted into your sheet. We recommend hitting Select All since you can easily delete columns in Gigasheet.

Step 4. Finally, confirm the number of requests is to your liking, and when ready click Run to kickoff the custom enrichment process. It’s ok to leave or close the sheet; the custom enrichment will keep running and you’ll receive an email once the job has been completed. You can monitor the progress of your enrichment, or cancel the job at the top of the sheet. 

Confirm Execution of Ziptastic API

Step 5. Once completed, Gigasheet will send a completion toast and refresh the page. The result will show generation of new columns based on the Ziptastic API for Forward Geocoding. Ziptastic has added the City, County, State, Country and other locale information data for each zip code of interest.
