    Question How to retrive location name form latitude and longitude?

    I m developing location based application for Symbian s60 platform.
    I have found the latitude and longitude for a particular location.
    But I don't know how to get location name from this latitude and longitude.
    Can anybody help me to resolve this problem as soon as possible?
    If possible then give me source code or any link for the same.
    Thank you.

    Hiii there...
    anybody can please give me some hint or Soruce code for the above problem?
    I am using this code...

    private void checkLocation()
    String string;
    try {
    // Request the location, setting a one-minute timeout
    location = locationProvider.getLocation(100);
    } catch (LocationException e) {
    } catch (InterruptedException e) {
    coordinates = location.getQualifiedCoordinates();
    if (coordinates != null) {
    // Use coordinate information
    double lat = coordinates.getLatitude();
    double lon = coordinates.getLongitude();
    string = "\nLatitude : " + lat + "\nLongitude : " + lon;

    // location.getAddressInfo();

    } else
    string = "Calculating position, no fix yet.";
    " location.getAddressInfo(); "
    This code is not working.

    You need (access to) a database that has the information. Keywords to search for: "geocode", "geocoding","reverse geocoding", "gelocation", "reverse geolocation".

    The best solution for it can be to use location Api of BING maps or else create your own database for location.when you use Bing maps api you will be returned with xml document by parsing that document and retriving name of location from that document will solve your problem
