Do you provide time zone data?

Question

Last Updated: March 11, 2014

I’ve been using your Live Address API for many years, but I wonder if there could be something added to the response… the time zone info of the address (since you have the lat/long geocoding)?

Answer

Thank you for your loyalty to LiveAddress! Your patience and persistence has finally paid off! Time zone data is now available from SmartyStreets.

So, what exactly is included in the time zone data? We have actually added three output data point and placed them in the Metadata section of our raw response:

  • Time Zone—This shows the time zone's common name.
  • UTC Offset—This is the number of hours the time zone is offset from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
  • Daylight Savings Time (DST)—This tells you if the time zone observes Daylight Savings.
