How to get list of places around current location?

Postby codezion » Tue Oct 05, 2010 4:33 am

Hi everyone -

Thanks for all the useful info on the forums. I have a hopefully a quick question for you guys. Can you please help me get started in finding more information on this. I am wanting to get more details of places around a particular location on a map. For example, would it be possible to get a list of all public parks around where my current location is? Or how about all the businesses? I don't know if this is even possible or how I would go about getting this information. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

@lokhande: The link you've provided just overlays your location on Google map.
It would be really great if you can let me know how to get the list of addresses of the nearby restaurant etc.

Thanks for the reply. I will look through the links to see if they provide the info that I am looking for. In the meanwhile I found this link while searching a little more:

http://www.anddev.org/post2989.html

Unfortunately the source links on that page do not work. But I think there may be enough info at least to get started with if that MS service is good enough for the task.
