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 real subdivisions such as neighbourhoods, county, state or country.
To get the address for specified points, you need to use the REST URL Template. This template supports both HTTP and HTTPS protocols.
Here you need to pass the various parameters to this REST URL to get the location form lat and long. They are listed in the following URL.
