Use of PlaceFinder to show users nearest charity run
I work for a charity in the UK and we need a geocoding service for one of our sites. Users will type in a postcode, town, city etc into our search box and we will use the returned to geocode to show them the 10 nearest events to that location. They will then hopefully click on one of the events and use the online entry form to enter it.
We will not display the results on a map as the additional information about the event we want to show makes the design complicated. We will not store the geocodes nor display them to the user.
