UK Geocoder Maps - Postcode and Street Addresses

Mapperz has requests after requests on UK Geocoding Postcodes and Addresses for the UK.

Using Google Maps API and Local Search Two Geocoders have been created

Please use the Official Method.

Local Search Example
http://geo.localsearchmaps.com
http://geo.localsearchmaps.com/?street=48+Leicester+Square&
city=London&country=UK
returns
map.centerAndZoom(new GPoint(-0.130427, 51.510036), 4);

Mapperz just returns the GPoint on a Google Map and displays the center of the map

Top Tip: is you can zoom in after the result is returned to display your Postcode or Address locations.

Note: This is only using data freely available on the Internet.
