This API can determine the coordinates of a toponym using its address, or the address of a point using its coordinates.
Forward geocoding is used for determining an object's coordinates based on its name or address. The API presumes common typos and offers a number of suitable options. For example, you can convert a user-defined address to coordinates.
Reverse geocoding is used for determining an object's address based on its coordinates. For example, you can select the house closest to the point on the map and get its name. For reverse geocoding, you can select the necessary type of toponym. For example, you can search for streets or localities only.
Systems that send requests to the Geocoder must support the SNI (Server Name Identification) extension of the TLS protocol.
API request limits
Requests per second (RPS): Up to 50. It's calculated as the sum of requests from the client and from the server.
Total number of requests. The total number of requests is calculated using this formula:
Geocoder requests + Router requests + (5 × Panorama requests)
