The service generates precise geolocation and mapping coordinates and standardized addresses based on user or application input specifying a location in varying formats. It also provides information relevant to the location, including businesses and other organizations nearby, geographic features, and places of interest. The precision of geolocation is influenced by the detail of data submitted to the service. General information about the location will return a neighborhood, postal code, or street, while more specific information can be resolved to a precise physical address.
API methods support submission of known location data, either as free text or structured parameters. Optional parameters include the street or thoroughfare, the section or specific spot along that thoroughfare, the postal code, and the district or neighborhood, city, state or province, and any other administrative zone (e.g., a county). Depending on the completeness of the request, the API returns mapping specifications for either a general area or a precise physical address in standard format. Methods allow either individual submission of a single location or batch submission of a group of distinct locations.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
The Geocode Node.js library by Nicolas Chaulet can geocode and reverse geocode with the providers of Google Geocoding, FreegeoipGeocoder, DataScienceToolkitGeocoder, OpenStreetMapGeocoder, MapQuestGeocoder, Open MapQuestGeocoder, ArcGis Online Geocoding, TomTomGeocoder, OpenCage Geocoder, Smarty street geocoder, and Geocodio.
This PHP library aims to be the most functional geo-aware tool because it includes the providers of ArcGISOnline, GeoIP2, Google Maps, GoogleMapsBusiness, MaxMindBinary, Nominatim, TomTom, and Yandex. What this library provides is powerful abstraction layer for geocoding manipulations, according to the author. A complete guide to use the PHP library is available on William Durand's GitHub site.
