How to implement a search for surrounding suburbs or postal codes?
When user enters a suburbs name or postal code I need to find its surrounding suburbs or postal codes, I had a look at the following solutions that I have found in my researches, but none of them helped much any other solution?
1) Google Map >> limitations on number of requests 2) Geonames >> not precision 3) Lucene >> usually for data search not sure how to use for suburbs.
You can use http://api.geonames.org/findNearbyPostalCodes? to find surrounding postcodes.
