Is there any API available that can get the latitude and longitude boundaries from the address.

For example if we provide: 12380 Sunnyvale avenue, CA, 90005

Can we get the latitude minimum and maximum, longitude minimum and maximum for that address?

  • If that's a single postal address then do you want the boundary of the building or the parcel of land? I very much doubt either exist except in specialised local land management systems. Have you looked at the Google Maps API? Do you want USA only? Or only some states? – Spacedman Jul 24 '19 at 16:57

    Usually geocoding API's return a single LAT/LON for the location of the address. – DPSSpatial_BoycottingGISSE Jul 24 '19 at 17:44

Nominatim gives the bounding box (max/min latitude and longitude) using the api. see this

  • What does that bounding box describe? The land parcel? – Dan C Jul 29 '19 at 15:28
