I am new to the GeoAdmin API.

For a mobile app, I need to retrieve a "place names" (lieux-dits / Flurname) given a geo position. We can see at the bottom of the article what is exactly meant with "place names"

How can I do that?

I didn't find a quick answer reading the REST API docs.

I was imagining giving as input a GPS coordinate and retrieving a "place name" as output. Is it possible?

Thanks for your input.

this can be done with the search service: , see examples eg Search for locations matching the word “wabern”:

Search for locations of type “parcel” and “district” (the origins):,district&type=locations  etc
