Nearest point with Road and delivery point code?


I’ve played for this graphhopper server now. I got nearest road point by using /nearest with my raw GPS point data.

Now I would like to get road name and postcode/delivery point code. Is this possible?



{nearestRoad:“Crouchfield Road”, postcode: “HP1 1PA”}

Could someone suggest a useful request that has similar features as above? and indicate if I have to issue nearest before using this new request for road information?


Postcode is not possible. Nearest road is not implemented for this endpoint but you could use the /route endpoint and request a route starting at the same point as it ends and use the road name returned by the instructions. What you are looking for is more a reverse geocoder?
