does anybody know a way of retrieving the state for a given coordinate via some kind of API?
Like getting 'Bavaria'(Germany) or 'Wales'(GB) or 'Lublin'(Poland).
There seem to be such services, as some geotagging tools for pictures use them. But I don't know which services or APIs they use and if it's OSM based.
Any help (even if it is just on nomenclature; is this a reverse-geo-db?) is much appreciated.
