View Full Version : Batch Reverse Geocoder

Hi All,

I'm a bit new to mappoint so please forgive my ignorance. I have need to reverse geocode a lot of lat/long coordinates in real time. i.e. turn a lat/long into an address.

I am currently using the mappoint web service, like this
returnedLocations = findService.GetLocationInfo(thisLatLong, "MapPoint.EU", infoOptions);

This is fine it gives me the address I want but it doesn't give me enough throughput. How do I do this in batch mode? i.e bundle up say 100 lat/long pairs, get the service to reverse geocode them and then download the results so I can put them into a database. I think that will be much more effecient.

Thanks in advance,

Did you ever find a solution? I neet to do something similar and I've searched the world over for a soution. It "appears" that only one location can be geocoded at a time.

Thanks in advance! - Fred

This tool lets you bulk reverse geocode a list of map coordinates:

Reverse Lookup Addresses from Map Coordinates (http://www.batchgeocode.com/reverse/)

(It uses the Google Maps API.)
