Geocoder API Developer's Guide


The following enumeration values are available for ReverseGeocodeModeType:

  • retrieveAddresses Search for the closest street address or addresses.
  • retrieveAreas Retrieve the administrative area information for the position provided in the request.
  • retrieveLandmarks Search for landmarks like parks and lakes in the proximity provided in the request.
  • retrieveAll Search for streets, administrative areas and landmarks. This mode aggregates the results of the three different modes in one call.
  • trackPosition Retrieve street information based on a position and bearing.

If gen>=1 and a Reverse Geocode request with mode=retrieveAddresses does not find any addresses, area information is returned instead. If gen=0, the empty result set is returned.
