Geocoding API

geocoding_example A fast and customizable geocoding engine which provides appropriate coordinates for your search of settlements, addresses, or points of interest. The API results produce a set of waypoints related to given parameters. These waypoints include the name of the address and the location (containing the state, county, country code, country, street, house number, osm_key, and osm_value if available) related to the waypoint. Open Street Map is used as a basis for the geocoding API.
Bulgaria is currently supported. Additional regions or countries can be added upon request.
