Instance Method

reverseGeocodeLocation(_:preferredLocale:completionHandler:)

Submits a reverse-geocoding request for the specified location and locale.

Declaration

func reverseGeocodeLocation(_ location: CLLocation, preferredLocale locale: Locale?, completionHandler: @escaping CLGeocodeCompletionHandler)

Parameters

location

The location object containing the coordinate data to look up.

locale

The locale to use when returning the address information. You might specify a value for this parameter when you want the address returned in a locale that differs from the user's current language settings. Specify nil to use the user's default locale information.

completionHandler

The handler block to execute with the results. The geocoder executes this handler regardless of whether the request was successful or unsuccessful. For more information on the format of this block, see CLGeocodeCompletionHandler.

Discussion

This method submits the specified location data to the geocoding server asynchronously and returns. When the request completes, the geocoder executes the provided completion handler on the main thread.

After initiating a reverse-geocoding request, do not attempt to initiate another reverse- or forward-geocoding request. Geocoding requests are rate-limited for each app, so making too many requests in a short period of time may cause some of the requests to fail. When the maximum rate is exceeded, the geocoder passes an error object with the value network to your completion handler.
