Termination of Yahoo Geocoding API and Yahoo Reverse Geocoding API, and introduction of jageocoder

March 6th, 2024

Until now, location information (latitude and longitude) and address information (names of prefectures, cities, towns, and villages, etc.) have been added to metadata using the Yahoo! Geocoding API and Yahoo! Reverse Geocoding API provided by Yahoo Japan Corporation, and have been used to display category locations, etc. However, we have decided to discontinue the use of these APIs. Instead, we have decided to supplement location and address information by introducing jageocoder.
