A GPS tracking device is fixed on the vehicle it will be sending latitude and longitude readings frequently . Now my task is to get the location address/name with that reading since i need to develop it in windows application that is the problem .
I saw in net it was all based on web application which uses JSON concept . But JSON in windows ????

Look at my article here on CP: Consuming a Json WebService from a C# or VB Application[^].
Do not forget that you ought to get a username for geonames webservice.

Hi Milind the URL which you have send will work but the thing is the Output of my GPS tracking Device is like this 12177759N,076372527E where i filter all the data and get it 12.177759 and 076.372527 when it give to this URL,076.372527&sensor=false
when i give this data to get location address it shows some other area
but in google map in search textbox if i give like this 12 17.7759,076 37.2527 it is showing accurate place if i pass the same parameter to above URL its output
is "No data available for the specified location " that is the customer error message now i want to give Latitude and longitude in this format 12 17.7759,076 37.2527 (Please see the space given in data it is also important) so now i need to send data in this format and get it but it is working fine in google map so guide me how to solve it

Thanks in Advance
