A free geocoding a.p.i.

Post by stevedee » Friday 04th October 2019 3:14pm

Recently, I needed a free geocoding api to get co-ordinates from place names for a Gambas program that reports UK 'crime data'.

Of those I came across, some required a Billing Address, and almost all required registration for an API key.

But then I got lucky and found this one from DataScienceToolkit:-
http://www.datasciencetoolkit.org/devel ... oordinates

I've been using it on & off for a few days, and it seems reliable.

There is a free URL api at ip-api.com should it interest you. I have used it in my program Your_location.
