An Address is returned by a call to ReverseGeoCode(LatLon). Such a call may be made as follows. Imagine that a user has clicked on a point on an IMap, generating a mouse event which we have resolved to a LatLon, and we would like to retrieve the address as a formatted string, in the form "Found [number] [street name] ([alternate name]) in [country]":
public string getFormattedAddress(LatLon location) {

    // Use the location LatLon to lookup the Address.
    Address addr = Telogis.GeoBase.GeoCoder.ReverseGeoCode(location);

    string formattedAddress;

    // "Found 455 Blenheim Rd [Sh 73a], Christchurch, Christchurch City, Canterbury, 8042"
    formattedAddress += "Found " + addr.FormattedAddress;

    // Add the first alternative name (if present) in parentheses
    // NOTE: Alternate names aren't ranked
    if (addr.Names.Length > 1) {
        formattedAddress += (" (" + addr.Names[1] + ")");

    // Add the country, if not the USA
    if (addr.Country != Country.USA) {
        formattedAddress += (" in " + CountryToString.ToString(addr.Country));

    // "Found 455 Blenheim Rd [Sh 73a], Christchurch, Christchurch City, Canterbury, 8042 (Blenheim Rd [Sh 73a]) in New Zealand"
    // or, if Blenheim Road was in the US, simply: "Found 455 Blenheim Rd [Sh 73a], Christchurch, Christchurch City, Canterbury, 8042 (Blenheim Rd [Sh 73a])"
    return formattedAddress;
