Get the latitude and longitude coordinates from the given address. Get additional information from the provided GPS coordinates. Displayed on a map.
The following data can be obtained: country, state/region, city, zip code, area code, latitude and longitude coordinates. Addresses and GPS coordinates can also be used.
The program was developed to help people get information about places. Users only need to enter an address and will get the latitude and longitude coordinates, a map with the location of the place, its address and additional information like city, state, zip code and country.
This is a useful tool for developers who plan to add address search functionality to their applications or integrate location data into their websites. The RESTful API returns JSON data and allows performing precise geocoding with just one line of code.
How does it work?
It also gives you access to geocode capability; gives back latitude/longitude coordinates; allows you to create a point on a map (latitude/longitude); provides access to reverse geocoding; provides access to other data (area codes, country codes).
What are its parameters?
To use this API you must sign up for an account first; each person receives an individual API access key that is recognized by our API: bearer token; send your bearer token to the authorization header; it accepts HTTP requests; in order to determine the best response format for your needs; you can choose from JSON or XML; depending what you prefer as a client.
What are its advantages?
It offers several advantages for developers because it saves them time when trying to get information about places. It also allows them to perform tasks more effectively because it helps them organize their databases according to geographic criteria instead of alphabetical ones.
This API is free of charge after signing up for an account. It has an advanced algorithm that allows it to determine whether the first character of an address is a number or a letter. This means that in
Lookup address and additional information like place name, phone number, opening hours, etc. for a given location or GPS coordinate.
To make use of it, you must first:
1- Go to Reverse Geocoding API and simply click on the button “Subscribe for free” to start using the API.
2- After signing up in Zyla API Hub, you’ll be given your personal API key. Using this one-of-a-kind combination of numbers and letters, you’ll be able to use, connect, and manage APIs!
3- Employ the different API endpoints depending on what you are looking for.
4- Once you meet your needed endpoint, make the API call by pressing the button “run” and see the results on your screen.
