Ideal for local search

Let your users search for their next home car or tradesman with a place name instead of a postcode.

Reduce typos in place names

Offer up suggestions as users type a place name, so they can choose the correct spelling.

Geocoding without postcode

Users don't need to give their full address, just a town, city, village, street name or London borough.
