Geocodes identify a location using latitude and longitude. Geocodes also have an associated
accuracy rating. Geocodes are added to the pre-existing latitude and longitude fields on
accounts, contacts, and leads. The accuracy field is also populated. By default, these fields
aren’t visible on records, but you can check them out in a few ways, including using custom formula fields and querying the Salesforce API.
Geocodes are added only for some standard addresses.
