The geo-info Reverse Geocoding API turns coordinates into human-readable locations. The information that is returned is a JSON object with information based on latitude and longitude input.
Given a latitude and longitude, the API will show the nearest location along with additional information about the location. The API will also display a list of cities and places nearby sorted by distance.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
The geo-info Ruby Sample Code demonstrates how to make requests that include latitude and longitude, returning a JSON object with a location. The API will also return a list of cities and places nearby sorted by distance.
