Tiny GeoCoder API

Note: The Tiny GeoCoder API is no longer available.
This profile is retained for historical purposes only.

Use the Tiny GeoCoder API to turn a location, such as "San Francisco, CA," into a latitude and longitude pair, such as 37.775196,-122.419204. This is useful in mapping applications. The API can also handle reverse geocoding in cases where you know the lat/long but not the location name.

The public service has been discontinued, but the geocoder is now available as open source.
