List Nearby Police Stattions from Phone's Current Location in a ListBox RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm Developing a Windows Phone 8 App. In the app there is a section where user can tap on a button and will be able to see a list of police stations and hospitals near to him. I used the GeocodeQuery but it gives the location from all over the world but I want the results only which are near to the user.

    Is there any way to do that?

    Thanks in Advance

  • Bing Maps does not have any point of interest information for Nepal. Note that Police/Hospital is an point of interest and not an address. If you have the address of hospitals or police stations then Bing Maps can geocode them. With that said you will have to find a data source online that has police and hospital information. Once you have that information you can either host the data yourself and import it yourself, or you can host it in the Bing Spatial data Services.
