Google Reverse Geocoder released

Google has released reverse geocoder to the Google Maps API.

Geocoding
Geocoding is the process of converting an address into a latitude and longitude.

Example:
http://maps.google.com/maps/geo?q=10%20bayswater%20place%20newlands%20wellington%20new%20zealand&output=xml&key=abcdefg


Reverse Geocoding
Reverse Geocoding is, not surprisingly, the reverse of geocoding. Instead of converting an address into a latitude and longitude it is the process of converting the latitude and longitude into an address.

Example:
 http://maps.google.com/maps/geo?output=xml&oe=utf-8&ll=-41.287817,174.774132&key=asdad
