How to search for places of interest on map?

Postby kiranp » Mon Aug 23, 2010 1:20 pm

Hello all.

I need to know, how can I find places nearby my current location (or any specified location), such as banks or hotels, etc.
All i need to know is, how do I "tell" google that I need all banks near "xyz" place..and then how do get the coordinates of the retrieved places?

Please help me out guys.. I need to know this really quick.
I tried googling it, but i did not find a solution.
I know this can be done somehow!

Waiting for your replies.

just create your own API key and replace in the below links...

I am able to check Point of Interest for the below Latitude and Longitude.

Working Link :

Searching library within 7500 meter : ... GRSjE7S8Vg

Searching bar within 7500 meter : ... GRSjE7S8Vg

Searching atm within 500 meter : ... GRSjE7S8Vg

Searching school within 500 meter : ... GRSjE7S8Vg

if I give latitude and longitude of any place in India, then it is not working, I am working on this issue,if you got any idea please inform.

XML response of India Latitude and longitude :

I/P : ... GRSjE7S8Vg

O/p ;

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
- <PlaceSearchResponse>

not getting why i am not able to access data related to india from google server.............
