Is there an alternative to Google Maps to find GPS coordinates of a place in Germany?


For probably any place on Earth, you can search it in Google Maps, make right-click, pick the option "What's here" and you get GPS coordinates.


If I don't want to use Google Maps API, is there an alternative open API to get GPS coordinates by address? To be less broad, say in Germany?

Never tried, but city mapper API let you probably do it:

There are a number of APIs for OpenStreetmap, e.g. via html request:örsterstrasse,%20heidelberg&format=json&polygon=1&addressdetails=1

A json is returned. You can easily access the type of information you need.

I have not used the api for this particular purpose, but has very similar map data access.
