Hey, I’m about to implement location into my app and I’m after some advice about how to handle geocoding.
Users will be able to refine search results based on distance and I will be using the latlng points to calculate this. I know I can treat the latlng points as 2D vectors, then do the calculations to work out the distance using pythag theorem on the difference. However, I wondered whether there is a built in method to work this out.
The other issue I’m having is the Geocoding aspect of it, with regards to converting a postcode to the latlng points I require. the docs state that this is a resource heavy method. In what sense is this resource heavy?
Sorry if I’m a little unclear with what I’m asking, Thanks
