Using address to find lat/lng coordinates


I’m hoping that someone can point out to me a function that will return the latitude and longitude coordinates of a string address. I have searched through the documentation and can’t seem to find a function that performs this task. I’m not sure if one exist or if I am just not able to find it.

Specifically, I want to pass a string address like “123 Main St., Anytown NH” to the function and have it return the lat/lng coordinates for that address.



I’m sorry, Ray, but that is not a function of MapWinGIS.

I think your best bet would be to look into API’s that are available through Open Street Maps that would be capable of using the internal address range info to derive the approximate position.

Kind regards,

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for your response. I have looked into the API’s and I’ll continue to do so.

Best regards,
