Here is an example of how to do it :

public void GetCoOrdinates(string street, string city, string state)
        {
            string serviceUri = string.Format("http://rpc.geocoder.us/service/rest?address={0},{1},{2}", street, city, state);
            XmlDocument serviceXmlDoc = new XmlDocument();
            serviceXmlDoc.Load(serviceUri);
            XmlNamespaceManager geoCoderManager = new XmlNamespaceManager(serviceXmlDoc.NameTable);
            geoCoderManager.AddNamespace("geoCoderService", @"http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#");
            string longitude = serviceXmlDoc.DocumentElement.SelectSingleNode(@"//geoCoderService:long", geoCoderManager).InnerText;
            string latitude = serviceXmlDoc.DocumentElement.SelectSingleNode(@"//geoCoderService:lat", geoCoderManager).InnerText;
            MessageBox.Show(String.Format("Latitude: {0} Latitude: {1}", latitude, longitude));
        }


instead of a message box you can just write Response.Write() or similar for a web app.

Hope this helps

[Carlo on behalf of the OP] Hi,

The following error was came. IF u know free service of this, please tell me

006We currently throttle, rate limit, requests to our free XML port to a maximum number of lookups per request source per day to ensure fair and equal access to our free services. If you need this limit raised for your non-for-profit entity contact us with this message: 122.169.155.234 . Otherwise you might want to look at our pay-per-use unthrottled port.

Hi, no the free service comes with limitations. If you want to use this service commercially then you need to pay them. They have a scheme where you can pay per use.

That's not an error, it is a 'term of service' notice :rolleyes:

Try this: It worked for me...

public List<string> GetCoOrdinates(string street, string city, string state)
        {
            try
            {
                List<string> lstCordinates = new List<string>();
 
                string serviceUri = string.Format("http://rpc.geocoder.us/service/rest?address={0},{1},{2}", street, city, state);
 
                XmlDocument serviceXmlDoc = new XmlDocument();
 
                serviceXmlDoc.Load(serviceUri);
 
                XmlNamespaceManager geoCoderManager = new XmlNamespaceManager(serviceXmlDoc.NameTable);
 
                geoCoderManager.AddNamespace("geoCoderService", @"http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#");
 
                string longitude = serviceXmlDoc.DocumentElement.SelectSingleNode(@"//geoCoderService:long", geoCoderManager).InnerText;
 
                string latitude = serviceXmlDoc.DocumentElement.SelectSingleNode(@"//geoCoderService:lat", geoCoderManager).InnerText;
 
                //Console.WriteLine(String.Format("Latitude: {0} Latitude: {1}", latitude, longitude));
 
                lstCordinates.Add(latitude);
                lstCordinates.Add(longitude);
 
                return lstCordinates;
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                throw ex;
            }            
        }</string></string></string>
