I have a program which requires the latitude and longitude of United States addresses. It is not hosted by ArcGIS, it is simply a program which runs on my local box and needs a few address coordinates. I am using the REST interface to findAddressCandidates, using curl to execute the URL and retrieve the data returned. As an example, I am using a URL similar to this:


I have been told that this URL will no longer be supported in 2014. The ArcGIS documentation still includes information on how to use the rest interface to findAddressCandidates. Will there be a new URL for this kind of query? Can geocoding with ESRI be done without hosting an app on ArcGIS? If so, how?
