is there a quick way to do a reverse geocoding from a geofield field containing geographical coordinates?

I just need the country name, so I wonder if there is some service with more allowance than the Google API, or even a hosted solution with country coordinates and a drupal module quering it???? (as it seems to be a Drupal module for everything)

  • MapQuest Nominatim can handle reverse geocoding and I don't think it has a usage limit at the moment. The geofield module has integration with that service but I'm not sure if there's a UI/method exposed for reverse-coding. Might be worth a look

this is a question that I asked to myself some time ago. I suggest to start from the geocoder module. This module "translate" an address to a lat./lon. parameter that could be displayed in a map. Reversing this process - if I understand correctly your question - seems to be a WIP: actually, no out-of-the-box solution. But you can check and try the suggestions in this discussion.
