New from the on-line tools department: The reverse geocoder.

"You've entered a point in your Loadstone GPS database, so you have the 
coordinates, but you don't have a name. Time to try reverse geocoding!

The term Geocoding is often used to describe the mapping between an address 
and its geographical coordinates. Reverse Geocoding is the inverse 
relationship where each geographical coordinate is mapped to the nearest 
known address. Currently this feature is not directly supported by the 
Google Map API, but can be done by this experimental Reverse Geocoder for 
Google Maps."
