Use case

You can use an address locator file to geocode addresses and locations. For example, you could provide offline geocoding capabilities to field workers repairing critical infrastructure in a disaster when network availability is limited.

How to use the sample

Type the address in the Search menu option or select from the list to Geocode the address and view the result on the map. Tap the location you want to reverse geocode. Tap the pin to see the full address.

How it works

  1. Use the path of a .loc file to create a LocatorTask object.
  2. Set up GeocodeParameters and call GeocodeAsync to get geocode results.
