QGIS-geocoding Geocodinganchor icon

This algorithm provides a simpified access to the geocoding endpoint.

It can be used to assign geographical coordinates to textual data such as addresses.

Parameters descriptionanchor icon

Geocoding

Input data: The input layer. This layer should have attributes representing an address or a location name.

Restrict to country: Only return the results that are within the specified country

Results type:

  • ALL will return several results per input, corresponding to all potential matches returned by the API.
  • BEST_MATCH will only return the best point.

Search expression: The field containing the query to geocode. Can be an address, a postcode or a venue. For example SW1A 0AA or Victoria street, London. Providing a country or city the request will get you more accurate results

Focus point: This will prioritize results around this point. Note that this does not exclude results that are far away from the focus point

Output layer: Where to save the output layer. If you leave this empty, the result will be loaded as a temporary layer. It is still possible to save a temporary layer afterwards by right-clicking it in the legend and choosing “make permanent”.

QGIS-geocoding-reversed Reverse geocodinganchor icon

This algorithm provides a simpified access to the reverse geocoding endpoint.

It can be used to assign a textual address to geographical coordinates.

Parameters descriptionanchor icon

Geocoding-reverse

Input data: The input layer. This layer must have point geometries.

Restrict to country: Only return the results that are within the specified country.

Results type:

  • ALL will return several results per input, corresponding to all potential matches returned by the API.
  • BEST_MATCH will only return the best match.

Output layer: Where to save the output layer. If you leave this empty, the result will be loaded as a temporary layer. It is still possible to save a temporary layer afterwards by right-clicking it in the legend and choosing “make permanent”.
