Full Description

About this image

Geoclient is a Web API written in Java by the New York City's Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DoITT.) It acts as the web-access layer for the Geosupport C library that serves as the official geocoder of New York City.

This Docker image provides Geoclient/Geosupport running on Apache Tomcat.

Running this image

You can run the latest Geoclient with docker run -p 80:8080 delner/geoclient:16b then accessing http://localhost/ in your web browser.

Sample request: http://localhost/address.json?houseNumber=16&street=w%2082nd%20st&borough=manhattan

For more information about how to use this API, check out the API docs.

Alternatively, if you prefer to use this API as a service, or test drive without deploying, checkout the City's public API (which is a deployment of this Geoclient/Geosupport suite.)
