Geocoder Autocomplete API Developer's Guide

Retrieve Location Details for a Suggestion

After the user types a few characters, request a list of suggestions from the Geocoder Autocomplete API. Show the suggestions to the user. After the user selects a suggestion, retrieve the detailed location information corresponding to the suggestion using the Geocoder API.

Request

Request a list of address suggestions for the search text Pariser 1 Berl:

http://autocomplete.geocoder.cit.api.here.com/6.2/suggest.json
  ?app_id={YOUR_APP_ID}
  &app_code={YOUR_APP_CODE}
  &query=Pariser+1+Berl
  &beginHighlight=<b>
  &endHighlight=</b>     

Response

The response from the Geocoder Autocomplete API contains a number of suggestions. Each of them represents a location defined through a set of attributes, but these do not provide detailed location information such as geographic coordinates.

{
   "suggestions": [
    {
    "label": "Deutschland, Berlin, Berlin, 10117, Berlin, Pariser Platz 1",
    "language": "de",
    "countryCode": "DEU",
    "locationId": "NT_5mGkj3z90Fbj4abzMbUE4C_xA",
    "address": { ... },
    "matchLevel": "houseNumber"},
    ... ]
}

Geocoder Request to retrieve the Location Details

After the user has selected a suggestion, you can retrieve the location details such as the geographic coordinates via the HERE Geocoder API, using look-up by locationId.

Here is the request to the Geocoder API. For more information about the HERE Geocoder API, see the Geocoder API Developer's Guide.
