Location Search

Location search returns a list of search results based on your user’s location, for example showing listings or other users within 10 miles. Search results are usually ordered by geographic proximity, with the closest result first. Location based search requires a method of geocodingĀ a postcode into geographic co-ordinates (latitude and longitude), often using the Google Maps API. Location search development also requires a method of calculating the great-circle distance between 2 co-ordinates, often using the haversine formula.
