I want to make a apps that check what's the nearest place from where the user is. I can easily get the location of the user and I have a list of places with latitude and longitude.
What would be the best way to know the nearest place of the list against the current position.
I could not find anything in the google APIs.
I am worried I need to resort to my calculate and have to do math to calculate it.
What do you guys think ?
Cheers and thanks for reading or replying.
Location loc1 = new Location(""); loc1.setLatitude(lat1); loc1.setLongitude(lon1); Location loc2 = new Location(""); loc2.setLatitude(lat2); loc2.setLongitude(lon2); float distanceInMeters = loc1.distanceTo(loc2);
