Croozeus - Why not use Nokia reverse coding?

Somnath, this is cool!

Nokia Maps API for Qt also provides reverse geocoding - Reverse_Geocoding_in_QML - why not use that instead of Google API?

Somnathbanik - Why not use Nokia reverse coding?

Hi Croozeus,

Thank you for going through my article and to suggest me the idea of Reverse_Geocoding_in_QML. But actully my idea in this article is to get Coordinates(Latitude/Longitude) of the position. While in Reverse_Geocoding_in_QML it shows the Location name from the Coordinates(Latitude/Longitude). Or are you trying to point me to use any feature of Nokia Maps API for Qt that is related to Reverse_Geocoding_in_QML.

Please correct me if I am not getting you properly.

Croozeus - QGeoSearchManager

Hi Somnath,

Ah, sorry I meant geocoding.

QGeoSearchManager supports it


I don't know how well it works for addresses in India (because of the unstructured addresses), though using it at the city level should give you good results. Give it a go when you've some time :)

Shintu - Ported to WP?

Is this code ported to WP?

Hamishwillee - Shintu - maybe try a private message?

Hi Shintu

You might want to private message the author since there is no guarantee they are watching this topic any more - just hover over somnathbanik in the ArticleMetaData at the top right to get the option. I suspect that even if this was ported the approach would be quite different because there are a lot of 3rd party C# libraries for accessing FB /web services.
