I just wanted to express this is a very interesting way of using NYC DCP’s LION file.

Thank you Fanny!

We source data from the lion.gdb (geo-database) for this.

We are currently finding ways to implement GST as a proper/more mature API so that any “app” can call the results ( we plan to encode in geojson ) seamlessly into their application through simple HTTP requests.

Open to suggestions here.

For the time being you can issue curl requests from the command to get the GST result.

curl -s ‘http://geostreettalk.city:5000/coordinate/?40.743074,-73.996391' | grep h1

should output

<h1>You are on 7 Avenue between W 21 St and W 22 St in Manhattan</h1>
