Examples

The following example shows how to resolve a CivicAddress from a GeoCoordinate location synchronously.

using System;
using System.Device.Location;
namespace ResolveAddressSync
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            ResolveAddressSync();
        }
        static void ResolveAddressSync()
        {
            GeoCoordinateWatcher watcher = new GeoCoordinateWatcher(GeoPositionAccuracy.High);
            watcher.MovementThreshold = 1.0; // set to one meter
            watcher.TryStart(false, TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(1000));

            CivicAddressResolver resolver = new CivicAddressResolver();

            if (watcher.Position.Location.IsUnknown == false)
            {
                CivicAddress address = resolver.ResolveAddress(watcher.Position.Location);

                if (!address.IsUnknown)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("Country: {0}, Zip: {1}",
                            address.CountryRegion,
                            address.PostalCode);
                }
                else
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("Address unknown.");
                }

Remarks

A civic address for a location can be obtained from a GeoCoordinate by using a class that implements ICivicAddressResolver.

The CivicAddressResolver class provides a default implementation that returns the civic address that corresponds to a GeoCoordinate, if the location source provides both coordinate data as well as civic address data.

ResolveAddress returns a CivicAddress for the current location. If the location source is unable to resolve the coordinate position to a civic address, Unknown is returned.

Constructors

CivicAddress() CivicAddress() CivicAddress() CivicAddress()

Initializes a new instance of the CivicAddress class.

Initializes a new instance of the CivicAddress class using address information.
