Reverse GeoCoder – Improved Processing & Newer Technologies

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
