Using Data

Obtaining census tract numbers

Can I use this API to create an easy way for users on my website to get their census tract number without using a map? I simply want the users to input their residential address into text fields. Hopefully this API will spit out their 10 digit census tract number after input. I would prefer NOT to redirect applicants to a 3rd party site.

 

I ultimately want to use the census tract number from the API to reconcile it with the following list (see link) of tract designations:

A detailed explanation of how I can achieve this would be GREATLY appreciated.
