Places of intrest

Postby chris123price » Sat Aug 29, 2009 2:56 pm


I have a app which shows my current location on a map.

I want to display places the user is interested in, for example, the location of nearby pubs.

I have the lat and long, is there a API method call to say get

1) all the locations matching this 'Pub'
2) within 1 mile or simply get 10 pubs

I'm looking for the same thing. That is, the ability to search for businesses matching a given search term near the current location.

Have you found a way to do this yet? Does anybody have any suggestions?
