Geocoder API

This API can determine the coordinates of a toponym using its address, or the address of a point using its coordinates.


You can find out how to use JavaScript API geocoding in the section Search on map of the JavaScript API documentation.

Forward geocoding

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

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.
