Reverse geocoding in rails app


#1

Hi all,
Hope all are doing well. Actually i need a help for implementing
reverse geocoding in Ruby on Rails application. I have implemented
geocoding in which the user enters his address for which the
respective map will be displayed. Now i need reverse geocoding in
which if the user clicks on a particular point of the map then the
respective address should displayed to the user. I dont have any idea
for this implementation.
Hope any one of you suggests me how to implement this.

Regards
Rizwana.

You can use the Google Maps API for this through Javascript or HTTP:
