The Google Geocoding API is a webservice for the Google Maps API. The Geocoding API provides a direct way to access a geocoder via an HTTP request, though it must be used in conjunction with Google Maps. Additionally, the service allows you to perform the converse operation (turning coordinates into addresses); this process is known as "reverse geocoding." Also, you can choose to limit your search to certain bounded areas (Viewport Biasing) or regions (Region Biasing).

There are no source code libraries or how-to links for Google Geocoding. If you know one why not add it?
