    Get address of lat/long

    Hey,

    Via a GPS receiver I get lat/long coordinates. I display a pushpin on the map for that location. Now I would like to know the Address/city/country for that point, how can I do that?

    I'm working with Mappoint Europe 2002 and VB.Net. Can someone help me with this?

    Thanks!

    Regards,
    Leen

    Leen,

    This is called "reverse geocoding".. there some different hacks for this, there are three articles in articles section, though I think they are all written in VB. See the discussion area for each of the articles to see if someone ported it to VB.NET.
