Forum Question: How Can I Map My Customers or Even All My Contacts On a Map ?

i am looking to put all my customers and potential customers on a map so whenever i am travelling i can see who is nearest to me and who i could visit.

is that possible with the mac ? in contacts you can sometimes see a map with the 1 selected address… but would this be possible for all the contacts of one or more groups ?

thank you for your kind reply !

    So no, and yes. Unfortunately, there is no way to do this in Contacts, or in the Maps app. Contacts will show them one at a time, and there is no function in Maps to grab the contacts and put pins in them.
    But the Internet is full of mapping websites and apps. Many of these make this a simple task. It isn’t Mac-specific.
    I did a search and picked one at random: batchgeo.com
    It seems like a good site, but I don’t know much about it. You can search Google for “map multiple locations” and pick another one.
    With this site, though, it wanted me to paste a list of addresses. So I went to my Contacts app, selected a bunch of contacts and then used Edit, Copy. ThenI created a new spreadsheet in Numbers and used Edit, Paste to paste the results. This puts it in a spreadsheet format. I then removed columns I didn’t need so I was just down to the addresses.
    I then copied and pasted from Numbers into that website and I ended up with a nice map showing all of those addresses.
    Now with another site it may be easier or harder. You are going to have to experiment a little and maybe learn some skill with Numbers to get it to work the way you want.

    The Contacts app is probably the most ignored app from apple. What this person asked should be able to do with the Maps app without using any third app or external website as you did. Contacts could be very dynamic if it were fixed.
