Find Places

Google Maps is aware of the user's clicks on the map. We can capture that click and determine the coordinates of the click.

When we have those coordinates, we can do more interesting things, like find the nearest restaurant, hotel, or transit station to the click.

On the server side, this page uses the services of the Google Places API.
Select radius in meters. Default is 300.
