Reverse Geocoder Tool
Use Reverse Geocoder to coordinate latitude and longitude locations. Reverse Geocoder does this by querying and downloading data from the TomTom Reverse Geocoder API. The Reverse Geocoder tool produces a record-for-record reverse geocode result which includes formatted address fields and latitude and longitude coordinates. In addition, a summary output is produced that provides a count of records that were successfully and unsuccessfully reverse geocoded.
Use Reverse Geocoder to assign address data to a spatial object or coordinates. This information can then be used to carry out a further geography-based analysis.
