On October 18, ProgrammableWeb will host a webinar discussing the critical importance of GeoEnrichment and data quality. You’ll learn what to look for in quality APIs, and see new APIs from Pitney Bowes in action. Pitney Bowes offers more than 4,500 global datasets.
This article is part of a 10-part series about interesting APIs that were added to our directory during 2016. Mapping and Location APIs are covered in this segment. The APIs were chosen by our researchers, by popularity according to website traffic, and by mentions on social media.
This is the fourth part of our series How to Add Postcode-Based Proximity Search With Open Data. In this article we will show you how to take a geocoded dataset and a postcode, and order the dataset by proximity to the postcode. This is used to find the nearest pub to a user specified location.
