The service converts address and location information into standardized National Area Codes (NACs). It generates mapping and routing data by NAC, and handles geocoding and reverse geocoding.
API methods support submission specifying a single location or parameters of an area. The API returns the appropriate National Area Code (NAC) for the location. Geocoding and reverse geocoding methods provide highly detailed information about features of a location or area within 24 developed countries, and less detail for other areas. Mapping and routing methods return specifications for displaying the location in standard mapping formats.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
