A GeocodeServer object uses an address locator to provide coarse-grained geocoding functionality either in Desktop and Engine applications, or using ArcGIS for Server over an Internet connection. In a Desktop or Engine environment, developers can use the GeocodeServer to perform coarse-grained geocoding tasks, such as geocoding a table of addresses, more easily than with the finer-grained geocoding ArcObjects. In an ArcGIS Server environment, GeocodeServer objects can be accessed over an Internet connection to provide geocoding functionality hosted by a remote server.

All of the coarse-grained functionality of the GeocodeServer can be accessed through the IGeocodeServer interface. Using this interface, you can geocode single addresses, geocode tables of addresses, find the address closest to a point, and access all of the support functionality required to accomplish these tasks.
