      Can you provide a sample Chris. I was getting errors when I submitted full addresses even with the right urllib encoding

      I'm using it in Python with good results.  I've noticed is that if there are spaces in your location (like if it's a full address) you need to encode them as plus signs or the service will return errors. (even though requests will do hex encoding on its own. I pass the query though urllib.quote_plus().  (Though I'm using the "q" parameter to pass my query as opposed to "location" so I'm not sure if that makes a difference)

      Also if you want JSON the parameter is "flags":"J" rather than "format":"json"

      Hope that helps someone.
