Google Maps – Forward and Reverse Geo-Coding

imageGoogle Maps allows you to plug in an address and get the location displayed on the map.

The later is an example of reverse geo-coding.

I needed a tool that would allow me to quickly navigate to a location of a know address (forward geo-coding) and then display the addresses of different locations on the map (reverse geo-coding). So using Google Map API examples, I quickly created this very simple tool which will allow you to do this. Check it out at:
