Reverse geocoding is the process of back (reverse) coding of a point location (latitude, longitude) to a readable address or place name. This permits the identification of nearby street addresses, places, and/or areal subdivisions such as neighbourhoods, county, state, or country. Combined with geocoding and routing services, reverse geocoding is a critical component of mobile location-based services.
Nokia provides one of the best location based services available and reverse geocoding is well supported in Qt/C++ and HTML5, but is not so fast to access to this service from QML.
QReverseGeocode provide a quick and easy solution to manage reverse geocoding from QML.


  1. Download source code from here
  2. Include QReverseGeocode directory into your project




#include <QtGui/QApplication>
#include "qmlapplicationviewer.h"
#include <QtDeclarative>
#include "qreversegeocode.h"
Q_DECL_EXPORT int main(int argc, char *argv[])
QScopedPointer<QApplication> app(createApplication(argc, argv));
qmlRegisterType<QReverseGeocode>("QReverseGeocode", 1, 0, "QReverseGeocode");
QmlApplicationViewer viewer;
return app->exec();


import QtQuick 1.1
import com.nokia.symbian 1.1
import QtWebKit 1.0
import QtMobility.location 1.2
import QReverseGeocode 1.0

reverseGeocoder.longitude = positionSource.position.coordinate.longitude
QReverseGeocode {
