Yahoo Geo Location API

Note: The Yahoo Geo Location API is no longer available.
This profile is retained for historical purposes only.

Yahoo's REST-based Geo Location API allows users to retrieve associated geographic locations for a given term (e.g. paella, wild west, reindeer). This may be used to identify words or phrases that are descriptive or characteristic of a certain area. The user may retrieve implicit locations for a term on a global scale or within a restricted geographic region, such as a country or a town.
