Geocode addresses to locations and reverse geocode locations to addresses offline.

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. Select the pin to highlight the PictureMarkerSymbol (i.e. single tap on the pin) and then tap-hold and drag on the map to get real-time geocoding.

How it works

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