Description

Latitude

String

The latitude coordinate for the point you want to search around. Use the coordinate format specified in the Coordinate format option.

Longitude String

The longitude coordinate for the point you want to search around. Use the coordinate format specified in the Coordinate format option.

MaxDistance String (Optional) The radius of the search area in which to look for nearby points of interest. If you specify a value in this field you will override the default value specified in the Maximum distance option. Specify the radius in the units selected in the Distance units option. To maximize the results, enter a large enough value, for example, to search the world, use a value equal to 26000 miles or 40000 km. For a Point-in-Polygon search, 0 is the appropriate maximum distance so that there is overlap between the point and polygon.
