Location Helper brings the power of Core Location to AppleScript. Location Helper has no interface, and runs in the background waiting for AppleScripts to ask it to do something.
You can use it to find your current location, altitude, geocode addresses, even reverse geocode your current location from your AppleScript scripts and applications.
Location Helper also contains all the functionality of our popular app JSON Helper, which allows you to parse JSON into AppleScript records, and convert AppleScript lists, records and strings into JSON.
Maintenance release with minor bug fixes

Very handy! - I was looking for something to help me customize some of my Geeklets (little command-line scripts that run in GeekTool). Anyway, along comes Mr. Blishen and boom! Instant geo-location awareness easily integrated with AppleScript, which worked perfectly for changing where on my screen certain Geeklets showed up depending on if I was running docked to a large monitor or standalone. Location Helper's well-thought out use cases helped me get everthing up and running within minutes. Thank you very much!

So versatile and easy - AppleScript should've offered this natively, but this service provides a really complete and versatile dictionary. It could use a little more documentation in each verb, parameters, etc, but it didn't take long to try a few things to see what form you need to provide for direct objects and such.
Please Update - It worked awesome before I upgraded to OS X Yosemite. Please update!
Works awesome! - Love using this with the TextExpandor script!
Perfect! THANK YOU FOR WRITING THIS. - Perfect. Does exactly what I need it to. 'Nuff said.
