How to find street label from geolocation (lat, long) RRS feed

  • Question

  • My question is if I had multiple geolocations (lat, long) and want to figure out whether these points are along a road section or not, is there any API or method I can use?

  • You should be able to use Reverse Geocoding

    or Location Recognition

  • I don't think there is an API that does exactly what you want but there are two options for you:

    1. Snap to Road or Reverse Geocode

    2. Pull a very small static map at that location and look at the color of the point.  If it is "Road Colored" there is a road there otherwise it is something other than a road.
