The Geo API

The Geo API provides a simple way to find the location of a phone number. Results are given with their estimated level of accuracy, either 'accurate', 'questionable', 'best guess', or 'general area' based on factors such as record age, or whether a known record was used to find the result.

The request to our API is a standard HTTP GET request as follows:


format (required)

valid options are json, xml, text

key (required)

32 characters long, provided when you join the developer program

q (required)

valid South Africa phone number
