geocoding
1. The practice of matching standardized tabular data (organized as a table or list) to a specific real world location with established geographical coordinates.
2. The process of assigning geographic identifiers (for example, codes or geographic coordinates expressed as latitude-longitude) to map features and other data records; such as, street addresses.

You can also geocode media; for example, where a picture was taken, IP addresses (Internet Protocol address or a numerical label), and anything that has a geographic component.

With geographic coordinates the features can be mapped and entered into Geographic Information Systems.
