Convert a geographic coordinate (latitude and longitude) into a real world address or location.
Reverse geocoding is the opposite of address geocoding
This API is ideal for applications which process location data (for example mobile GPS data) and need to correlate this with real places.
If your coordinates do not map directly (or very close to) to a real address then you can still locate street, city, region and country information.
Our mapping data covers the entire globe and is continuously updated as new geographic data is created.
