BigDataCloud’s Reverse Geocoding to City API is the first to use administrative/non-administrative boundaries-based methodology to resolve geo-coordinates into readable address. The API returns detailed locality information like Country, City, County and more. The API also provides Postal Codes for selected countries like the US, UK and Australia.
Existing reverse geocoding providers look for the closest street address for the provided coordinates. As a result, the quality of data widely varies for mobile and regional users. Further, the level of detail is overkill and results in a slower response time.
Our Reverse Geocoding API is the first to deliver administrative/non-administrative boundaries-based results. Hence, the API is perfect for resolving user’s practical areas such as city, state or country, rather than their street address.
Unlike our FREE client-side reverse geocoding API, this API doesn’t restrict your use cases. Hence, you can use the service to carry out batch reverse geocoding using server-side programming languages such as Java, Python, NodeJS, PHP etc. You can also implement the API for your Android and iOS apps.
