Your app needs the ability to run a geography-based search. This could be searching on a map, within a radius or by distance. Your users may need to be able to locate people or businesses, need to identify certain landmarks such as hotels, gas stations, restaurants, etc. Or perhaps you need to get more specific with your search, including details such as user rating, brand/chain, or property type to filter the results within the given area. Geolocation searching has a wide range of uses.
Backendless Geolocation gives you the flexibility to search for geopoints within a map, radius, or a certain distance from a given point, as well as the ability to narrow that search using specific criteria. For example, if you want to offer users the ability to search for a hotel in a given area, you can also allow them to narrow that search by star rating, price, brand, room size, amenities, and anything else you need.
