  • in each day its posting nearly 50,000 packet reads(1 device post 5,000(lat,lng)),
  • storing these lat,lngs and calling server side Google API for getting Address(using these lat,lng) and stored that Address in DataBase,
  • here google map api gives 2,500/day requests only, remain data(50,000 - 2,500 = 47,500) address as null stored in DataBase

I have difficulties understanding. Could you please clearly state your question (log in and edit your text)?

You might want to read about OSM and see our docu wiki's main page.

With this volume of data (50k geocoding requests per day) you will probably need to set up your own geocoding server: e.g. Nominatim.

The usage policy of the Nominatim server running on openstreetmap.org can be found in the wiki. e.g. there is a limit of 1 request / second. The page also lists 2 commercial geocoders that you can use (probably for a fee)

... see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Search_engines for an overview, but it really seems to be the best to install an own server by you with an OSM based geocoding service of your choice.

@escada I'm pretty sure you will get blocked if you run 50k requests against OSMF's Nominatim server. I can't find the link, but I think Mapquest now limit to 15k/month (Certainly they've recently brought OpenMapQuest into line with other products wrt usage & API keys).
