Geocoding API

The Mapbox Geocoding API allows you to perform forward and reverse geocoding operations.

Forward geocoding converts text into geographic coordinates. For example, forward geocoding turns the address 2 Lincoln Memorial Circle NW into coordinate values of -77.050,38.889.

Reverse geocoding converts geographic coordinates into a text description, for example, turning -77.050,38.889 into the address string 2 Lincoln Memorial Circle NW.

A sample forward Geocoding API request looks like:
