Reverse GeoCoder WS – Upgrades + SOAP Service Deprecating

We are in the process of upgrading our Reverse GeoCoder Web Service (WS) with newer development technology, which will result in better performance and include added request options and response results. In the near future, we will be posting advisories and deprecation notices on our public Wiki.

This advisory is intended to inform you well in advance of the transition, as well as help Melissa in preparing our deprecating schedule and implement resources to help you transition your application to another supported and recommended protocol like XML or JSON. We strongly discourage new development using SOAP. Future updates will no longer be released, current service will stop using up-to-date data, and documentation, support and the service itself will be respectively deprecated.

If you have questions, or need help with transitioning, please call 1-800-MELISSA, or email
