Are there any webserveices/APIs that can take a country name and return a random coordinates (not including the sea/ocean sections) inside that country?

    GPS coordinates are those collected by a GPS receiver. If you're looking for random point locations within a country, please edit the question to request that. – Vince Sep 23 '15 at 13:18
  • So the coordinates tag should be removed? – Arya Sep 23 '15 at 13:24

    There's nothing GPS-specific about "coordinates". "geocoding" did not seem to apply. – Vince Sep 23 '15 at 13:41

    use the overpass api (openstreetmap) here is an example of finding a placename within a bounding box overpass-turbo.eu/s/bCD (use the data tab to see the raw output after running) – Mapperz Sep 23 '15 at 13:45
  • @Mapperz thanks for the link, but I'm trying to use this from my Java program. Is there an API that I can call from my program? Even a paid option would be usefull for me – Arya Oct 2 '15 at 4:34
