Hello everyone,


I am completely new to using/working with SharePoint.  I'm having trouble trying to figure out what's the best way to implement the creation of a map that is populated with information given to me on an excel spreadsheet.  The information given to me contains address information for the facilities currently being used by my agency.  I want to be able to plot these facilities as points on a map that will be contained on my SharePoint site.  I already have an ESRI web map installed (SharePoint admin installed) and I uploaded all the information on the excel spreadsheet to a SharePoint list.  My methodology was to install ESRI maps for SharePoint, geocode the addresses, and then plot the information on the maps (seems simple enough right?).  The problem is that I have heard through the grapevine that you need SharePoint server in order to install and use ESRI maps for SharePoint and I currently have only SharePoint 2010 workspace.  Can someone confirm that I need server?  Is there any way I can do the same process with workspace 2010?  If not, can someone provide me with a small tutorial on how to geocode the SharePoint lists and plot the geocoded information as points on my map?
