Over the last few weeks I have been doing plenty of work with geolocation and reverse geolocation directly in JavaScript, PHP and Ruby using mostly the Google Map's API. For the majority of map work the Google Map API is fine, but once you go past basic plotting of items on the map, comparing distance, etc and start trying to reverse geocode, everything gets a lot more complicated.

There are several options around but most geocoding or reverse geocoding services are a crusty mess with useless data or no/lacking API's. The best services I could find were Google Maps, Yahoo PlaceFinder and the relatively new SimpleGeo.
