The Reverse GeoCoder service provides the closest valid address or list of addresses based on an input latitude and longitude. This latest update incorporates performance improvements to the Coordinate/Distance algorithm processing. In addition, the underlying database access and service deployment has been updated to newer technologies for performance and stability improvement.
There are also new endpoints:
- doLookupPostalCodes – which can be used to provide the closest postal code(s), carrier route(s), or Plus4(s) based on an input latitude and longitude
- doLookupFromList – which can be used to provide the closest valid address, Melissa Address Key (MAK), and distance from a provided (input) list of MAKs (created with other Melissa services), and can be used to develop a dealer locator of sorts
