Reverse geocoding uses the user’s location to search for places

This example demonstrates the process of discovering locations by inputting coordinates (known as reverse geocoding) obtained from the user’s current position. Reverse geocoding transforms coordinates into place names.

By default, the example displays the user’s location, which is determined based on their IP address. However, you also have the option to manually enter specific coordinates in the designated text fields or utilize the map interface (click on the map) to search for places at those particular coordinates.
