You can geocode structured or unstructured addresses. The address parser can parse address and extract seperate parts. Gisgraphy also offers Premium hosted services and consulting. It uses (free) data from OpenstreetMap that are imported into a local database. Gisgraphy doesn't use Google Maps geocoder, it do it by itself.. You can see an example of use bellow. You can find documentation on how to use the XML API of the webservice and see how to download and install Gisgraphy.
