NodeJS module to reverse geocoding of countries.


npm install country-reverse-geocoding

How it works

The only method of this module is get_country:

get_country(lat, lng)

Where lat and lng are the latitude and longitude of the point to be reverse-geocoded. get_country returns:

  • an Error if something went wrong
  • null if the point is not in any country
  • an object with two attributes: code, the country code, and name, the English name of this country
var crg = require('country-reverse-geocoding').country_reverse_geocoding();
var country = crg.get_country(47.3, 0.7);
console.log(; // France 


Install jasmine-node:

npm install jasmine-node -g
