I have an access to DB which has the address of entities in terms of street number and name, city, country and postal code. Assuming all entities are Canada/US locations, is there a way (using google maps/location api or any other mechanism not involving an api) to search for these entities beside my current location? I just can't seem to find the way to approach this thing.
I know how to obtain my current position using GPS/network (in terms of long/lat). I am not sure how to proceed further?
