geocoding

Geocoding is the process of turning a text form location (such as an address or name of a place) into a set of geographical coordinates. The inverse, reverse geocoding, turns a set of geographical coordinates into an address or a place name. Either method, or both, might be used for location aware applications, or during the process of computing locations for checkins.
