The jquery.geocoder.js plugin enables you to retrieve GeoData (country, state, state code, city, lat, lng, postal code, etc) from a specific address using Google Maps' Geocoding API.

It also provides a reverse geocoding method that converts a point location (latitude, longitude) to a readable address or place name.

Easy to implement and without the need of Google API key.

How to use it:

1. Include the JavaScript jquery.geocoder.js after the latest jQuery library.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.min.js" 
        integrity="sha384-nvAa0+6Qg9clwYCGGPpDQLVpLNn0fRaROjHqs13t4Ggj3Ez50XnGQqc/r8MhnRDZ" 
        crossorigin="anonymous">
</script>
<script src="jquery.geocoder.js"></script>

2. Geocode an address you provide and returns a GeoData object including country, state, state code, city, lat, lng, postal code, etc.

var address = '1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA'

$.geo.geocode(address, {
    success: function(data) {
      console.log(data);
    },
    error: function() {
      // error callback
    }
});

3. Reverse geocode a point location (latitude, longitude).

var point = {
    lat: 37.4224082,
    lng: -122.0856086
};

$.geo.reverseGeocode(point, {
  success: function(data) {
    console.log(data);
  },
  error: function() {
    // error callback
  }
});
