Search API

Search APIs

In Search API we provide geocoding APIs for users to search for addresses on maps. Our Search API automatically parses addresses, intersections, and adds missing letters, and provides the most accurate results.


Main API features:

  • Partial address recognition: Automatically parse addresses, and intersections, and add missing letters
  • Highest Possible Accuracy: Accuracy competes with and even exceeds the accuracy of Google’s geocoding
  • Quick Response
  • Covers most of the world: You can get data from the API for any point on earth.


How does it work?

The Search API converts street addresses or any other human addresses to latitude and longitude coordinates. For example, Address-“1677 Easton Rd, Willow Grove, PA 19090, USA” can be converted into geographic coordinates like 40.1349979,-75.1228148 using this API.

Migration from Google Geocoding API

It is very easy to migrate from Google Geocoding API since the Geocoding API request is similar to the Google Geocoding API request format.
