I know that ArcGIS online does this quite nicely when you add an excel table of the address to a web map, but I would like to find a way to just access my address table in SQL --> geocode it --> and (maybe) update a map service? The address table isn't updated daily, more like monthly, so it will be nice just to create a Python, JS, or some kind of script to just have this run automatically - so I don't have to worry about it. I would be using either a JS or Silverlight application to display the points.

 

Thanks for any advice in advance!

You need to make an odbc connection to your SQl db in order to "see" the address table.  As far as automation goes, I guess you could do it, I'm more of a hack than programmer.  You surely don't want to re-geocode existing points every month....
