Mappit Geographical Book Search API - How To

The RESTful Mappit Geographical Book Search API allows the user to find books set in a particular geographic location. Using latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates the API offers two ways to search for books: basic and within a radius. A basic search will find the closet location to the coordinates entered and return a JSON response containing the title, author and URL for each book result. Searching with in a radius of a given location will return the same information for books within a certain distance of the location selected. Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0) license
