Google has just announced the addition of a valuable new feature for the Google Maps API (the most popular API in our API directory): reverse geocoding. If you are not familiar with geocoding, it is the process of converting an address into a latitude/longitude pair. Likewise, reverse geocoding is the process of converting a latitude/longitude pair into an address. Developers using the Google Maps API have had access to geocoding since its release in June 2006, and geocoding has been integrated with many of the map mashups developed with this API.
Google added a new layer to its own mapping application to show transit routes in the 400+ cities where it has data. The result is an easy way to see nearby bus and train stops on the web or on some mobile phones. Unfortunately, neither the data nor the imagery is available in the API version of Google Maps.
