Forward Geocoder on AWS Marketplace Developer's Guide

Quick Start

The Forward Geocoder on AWS Marketplace is a web API that you access using a REST interface. This article contains example requests that you can run to see how the service works.

Making Your First Requests

Sometimes the easiest way to start using new software is to run simple working examples.

This document uses {YOUR_AWS_INSTANCE} as a placeholder; replace it with your own unique AWS instance to access the API resources.

Note that most example URLs in this guide are broken up into multiple lines for better readability. Remove these line breaks and spaces when copying and pasting the examples to make sure URLs are still well formed.

Prerequisites

The only thing you need to start using the Forward Geocoder on AWS Marketplace is an HTTP client. Choose any HTTP client application you are familiar with. A command line tool like curl will do the job, as will any modern web browser.
