Finding type of Area at GPS Pos (Is a park here?)

Postby mrmmatricks » Thu Jan 27, 2011 8:44 am

Hi!

I am trying to find the kind of object or area at a specific GPS location. To be precise i want to know wether the user stands in a park or not.
I just found a lot of ways to display a map but no way to query what's at a specific position. I don't want to display a map just query whats at that position.

Is that even possible?

Thanks!

Yes it is possible, you may have to look up the places API by google. The precision is dependent on the accuracy of the GPS location being sent from the phone.
