Today, our smart devices can locate our geo-coordinates in real-time and with a high level of accuracy. But, these coordinates are often useless if you cannot identify the locality information such as country/state/city associated with them.
Reverse geocoding is a process that converts latitude and longitude to readable locality properties. Reverse geocoding is an essential component of the modern web, mobile and IoT. Its use cases vary across various industries and applications.
Existing reverse geocoding providers are trying to resolve to the closest street address, a household, for the given coordinates. As a result, the quality of data widely varies for mobile and regional users and exhibits slower response times.
Our Reverse Geocoding API is the first to deliver administrative/non-administrative boundaries-based results. Hence, the API is perfectly suitable for determining locality areas such as a suburb, city, state or country, rather than a street address, resulting in much faster response times and excellent support even for less populated areas.
This API is part of the Reverse Geocoding API Package and is available in free and paid plans. Please visit the Reverse Geocoding API Package package page for limits and pricing information.
