Geocoding

The Geocoding API is a powerful tool that converts addresses, such as

"109 Park Row, New York, United States," into geographic coordinates (e.g., "lat": 40.71226, "lon": -74.00207).

Designed for machine-to-machine interaction, the TomTom Geocoding API is capable of handling requests from automated systems to geocode addresses that may be incomplete, incorrectly formatted, or contain typos, providing the best possible result.
