Endpoint descriptions

  • Forward geocoding (/v1/search) to find a place by searching for an address or name
  • Reverse geocoding (/v1/reverse) to find what is located at a certain coordinate location
  • Autocomplete (/v1/autocomplete) to give real-time result suggestions without having to type the whole location
  • Structured Geocoding (/v1/search/structured) (beta) to find a place with data already separated into housenumber, street, city, etc
  • Place endpoint (/v1/place) for details on a place returned from a previous query
