Caspio provides you with a number of services and tools to help you easily and quickly create rich, interactive location-based and geocoding applications. These include Distance Search, Automatic and Bulk Geocoding, and Map Integration.
Incorporating distance search into your forms will give your users the capability to find and display records based their distance from a specific center of origin. For example, your user could input an address or ZIP code and find all hospitals within 10 miles of that location. The same can be done to find the nearest schools, grocery stores, movie theaters, and more. Learn more about Distance Search.
Have a global app? No problem. Distance search is by no means limited to U.S. addresses. Simply request that we geocode the addresses and/or postal codes for your targeted area. As a bonus, when you request the Search by Distance feature, a geocoded database of all U.S. ZIP codes will be uploaded into your account for free.
Caspio can geocode large sets of data for you either as a one-time service or on an ongoing basis. If you choose the ongoing service, your records will be geocoded real-time as they enter your database. When activated, the geocoding service automatically assigns precise latitude and longitude values to your address-centric tables.
Take it a step further by adding map mashups. This geocoding feature will make your applications smarter and more interactive. Instead of displaying plain text, any address-centric data in Caspio Bridge can be displayed on your site with a live map from Yahoo! or Google. Users will get more accurate information and be engaged in the process.
Distance Search, Automatic Geocoding, and Map Integration can all be easily implemented in your applications without programming. Additional resources such as step-by-step interactive demos and live instructor-led training sessions are available to help you complete your location-based applications in no time.
