convert NSArray to MKPlacemark

dickthedevdickthedev Posts: 183Registered Users @ @
Hello, I have a forward geocode block. like this:

[_geoCoder geocodeAddressString:searchString completionHandler:^(NSArray *placemarks, NSError *error) {

As is, the geocode data stores in the NSArray *placemarks. Now I would like to do some annotation to the map, The addAnnotation method requires a MKPlacemark, so how do I convert the place mark in NSArray into a MKPlacemark? Thanks.

    You already asked this and dev666999 answered you. (For converting a single CLPlacemark to an MKPlacemark.

    If you create a function that takes a CLPlacemark as input and returns an MKPlacemark then you could use a map function to convert an array of CLPlacemark objects to MKPlacemark objects.

    Taking it a step further, you could create an extension to MKPlacemark that defines a convenience initializer that takes a CKPlacemark as input.
    extension MKPlacemark {
      convenience init(withCLPlacemark: CLPlacemark) {
          //code from other answer to set up place mark

    And then:
    Let anMKPlacemarkArray ={MKPlacemark.init(withCLPlacemark($0)}
