Geocoding API

Learn to generate geographical coordinates with a location name and vice versa.

Geocoding API allows users to search for locations using their names and geographical coordinates. Geographical coordinates allow for a location to be specified accurately. This API is particularly useful in cases where the user may require the geographical coordinates for a given location or the location’s name given some geographical coordinates.

Geocoding refers to the translation of any geographical location name to its corresponding geographical coordinates—latitude and longitude. The reverse of this process is called reverse geocoding. We can use the geocoding API to perform both operations for different cities, areas, districts, states, and countries.
