Géocodage inversé


Reverse geocoding is the process of converting geographic coordinates (such as latitude and longitude) into a human-readable address or other descriptive information. This is the opposite of "forward" geocoding, which converts addresses or other descriptive information into geographic coordinates.

Avec le géocodage inversé, vous pouvez voir les noms réels des lieux sur vos cartes au lieu de simples chiffres et lettres. Imaginez que vous puissiez voir "Delicious Curry House" ou "Gorgeous Tea Estate" sur votre carte au lieu de "Latitude : 12.9716° N, Longitude : 77.5946° E".

Reverse geocoding is commonly used in mapping and location-based services, such as when a user wants to see the address of a specific location on a map or when an app needs to provide directions to a specific address. The process involves using a database of geographic coordinates and their associated addresses, along with algorithms and other techniques, to match the coordinates to the closest matching address. The resulting address or other information can then be displayed on a map or used for other purposes.
