OpenCage Geocoder

easy and open geocoding for the entire world

The power of many

Our API combines multiple geocoding systems in the background. Each is optimized for different parts of the world and types of requests.

We aggregate the best results from open data sources and algorithms so you don't have to.

What else?

We add useful info to every result: timezones, geohashes, Ordnance Survey gridrefs, calling codes, what3words, sunrise/sunset, and more, to save you time and effort. We also do our best to provide a well formatted address string with each result so you can easily show your users where they are in a way they understand (some background on our blog).


Free during our beta period. We will always have a free usage tier. See our FAQ.

About us

OpenCage Data is a division of Lokku. Founded in 2006 and based in London, we are long time supporters of OpenStreetMap and open data initiatives. We’re best known for Nestoria, our property search engine that works closely with 80+ major media companies around the world, managing lots of data (geo and otherwise). We run #geomob, the meetup of London location based service developers where we do our best to highlight geoinnovation.
