Reverse geocoding lets you identify the closest address or point of interest based on an input reference location, which can be one of the following:
- latitude and longitude
- point of interest
Mapping the optional radius input field lets you define the distance from the specified reference point and identify an area in which matching records are located.
With reverse geocoding, you can find one or more locations that can be points of interest, addresses, or both by setting the Search_Filter_Name or Search_Filter_Type input field. This limits the output matches to your search criteria. To return an address only, enter ADDR in the Search_Filter_Type input field. To return a point of interest only, enter the point-of-interest name or type. If you don't set a search filter, the transform returns both addresses and points of interest.
