The service provides geolocation and geocoding services based on a Natural Area Code (NAC). Accuracy can vary, from a two-character code identifying an area roughly 1000 km east-to-west and 750 km north-to-south to a ten-character code marking a location approximately 1 square meter anywhere in the world. Longer NACs can function as Universal Addresses, because they are accurate to the size of a building.
API methods support generation of NAC values at either two-, four-, eight-, or ten-character accuracy based on input of location coordinates such as a street address or latitude/longitude coordinates. Methods provide for both geocoding and reverse geocoding, along with mapping coordinates, route planning, and definition of a great circle path between specified points. API documentation is available, but additional information is sparse and dated, so viability of the service may be in question.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial 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.
