Reverse Geocoding - Overview


The Pipeline API can be used to perform reverse geocoding to obtain real-world location details such as country, city or road name from latitude and longitude information.

This service is currently only available via a cloud service rather than a local on-premise solution.

The 51Degrees cloud service exposes location data from two different providers:

  1. A 51Degrees-hosted solution based on the Nominatim API and backed by Open Street Map data.
  2. The GeoMprint product from Digital Element.

There is a quickstart guide to get you up and running ASAP or you can browse the more in-depth examples first.
