Does plasespotter really works????
- Hello, i am trying to set up plasespotter API for my application. I was able to run test URL:
http://yboss.yahooapis.com/geo/placespotter?documentContent=Sunnyvale+CA&documentType=text/plain and got back some results.
No other test returns any results back. Here is what i tried:
url = 'http://yboss.yahooapis.com/geo/placespotter?documentContent=
I+live+in+New+York and i got following:
"<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><bossresponse responsecode=\"200\"><placespotter count=\"1\"><document></document></placespotter></bossresponse>"
I get this for any string i put it. Except if i put
"Sunnyvale+CA" in front. It does not seem like this service works at all. Is anybody using it?
Any other services out there to get location out of unclassified text?
