WEATHER APP: Reverse Geocoding

WEATHER APP: Reverse Geocoding

#1

Can anybody give me some help with reverse geocoding? I’m really struggling to find a way of using Google Map’s API to convert a set of coordinates into a readable place name as all of the examples I can find seem to be a lot more complicated than what I’m trying to achieve.

My weather app now works 100% :smiley: The last piece of the puzzle is getting it to display a readable location instead of the coordinates of the user.

Hi mate,

doesn’t your API response contain the location?

A link to your code would help :slight_smile:

cheers

Thanks for the help, found what I needed in the end by using this link, then adding the user’s coordinates with JS. http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?latlng=

I’m using the Dark Sky API for my weather which doesn’t contain location information. Only time zone.
