Geocoder API Developer's Guide


A GeoPositionType represents a snapshot of positioning information. This information is usually provided by a GPS device.

The GeoPositionType has the following attributes:

  • Coordinate

    Position in WGS-84 coordinate system

  • Heading

    Direction of travel in degrees starting at true North and continuing clockwise around the compass. The heading information is optional.

Query Parameter Representation

The GeoPositionType can be represented in query strings as follows:

<Latitude> + "," + <Longitude> (+ "," + <Heading>)?

Example: pos=37.7890649,-122.4027371,271.4
