Hey, I am writing application using twitter api and I get user locations as keywords, like "New York, USA". Is there any way to make marker using only this string, or do I need to use some other api for converting string to latitute and longitude like google geocoding? I need something similar as:
gmap.SetCurrentPositionByKeywords("Maputo, Mozambique");
but for markers.
To clarify instead of using new PointLatLng(-25.966688, 32.580528) in
GMapOverlay markersOverlay = new GMapOverlay("markers");
GMarkerGoogle marker = new GMarkerGoogle(new PointLatLng(-25.966688, 32.580528),
GMarkerGoogleType.green);
markersOverlay.Markers.Add(marker);
gmap.Overlays.Add(markersOverlay);
I want to use string "New York, USA" for coordinates.
Any help would be appreciated.
