Let’s say you’re building a mobile app in Silex, and you want to add location-based search to your features. You’ve got a data set with a bunch of street addresses, like this CSV that lists all facilities in British Columbia that are licensed to sell or produce liquor.
A quick example:
|Joe's Beer Shack||125 Nowhere Lane||Victoria|
|The Whinery||420 Toker Street||Esquimalt|
|Spinnakers||308 Catherine Street||Victoria|
Not that I’m thinking of creating a “nearest booze” app. I’ve got better things on my mind. Anyway, that’s off topic. Uh oh! Now I’ve decided to make the app.
I’m going to call it DrinkyDrinkyThing.
