Getting gps cordinates from street address

Postby ijavid » Thu Jul 15, 2010 9:36 pm

Hi,

I am developing an application for local transport (bus, trams...). I scraping the data from a website. The user inputs a source and destination station (bus stop), and gets the path. Actually it works fine, but i want to add some eye-candy feature using googlemaps.

I'm new to android and google API too, can I search on the map by address? I'm searching for a function like:
Point search(String address);

On google maps the stops are marked, can do an advanced search on these (search only these locations) ? Or get the list of these places? sapmle

thanks for any advice and sorry for my bad English...

You are looking for 'reverse geocoding'
