What is Geocoding?

Geocoding is the action to convert address data to latitude and longitude coordinates which can be calculated, compared and mapped.

Geocoding is something which we use all the time when accessing mapping services.

When opening a map application or accessing a visual representation of a location with the “blue dot”, this process is called geocoding.

Whether there’s a full or partial address, geocoding can recognise anything.

What is Reverse Geocoding?

Reverse Geocoding retrieves nearest address to a given coordinates: it converts a latitude and longitude to address.

How can I optimise geocoding results?

You can use filters by country or language to get more relevant results.

Use the “language” setting to limit the number of results or filter by country (alpha 2/alpha 3 codes are available) to restrict your results to specific areas.

Can I perform bulk geocoding (batch process) with your Geocoding API?

Yes, the REST API is designed to support a large volume of requests. You can use the API to properly format your clients’ address database, for example.
