Find The Distance Between Two Addresses

After having a lot of fun working on the "Find Your Nearest ATM" script I decided to have a go at something similar, but a little bit different.

Some Background

This is actually going to be part of a project I'm currently working on in my job at Worldview Limited. I have recently been writing a "Proposal Generator", which uses a lovely JavaScript "Web App" interface to add options and text to generate a PDF "proposal" for our corporate clients.

Part of the specification for the new system was to include the distance from a given location to one of our supplier locations. This needed to be dynamic based on the two addresses given so I decided to have a hunt around and see what I could find.

Find Your Nearest ATM

I have been working on a few scripts recently a little different to the normal ones you might find on DeVSeO. Partly this is because I have now discovered how awesome jQuery can be, and how easy it is to learn and use. Because of this I have undertaken a few personal "mini-projects" with the help of jQuery and a little bit of HTML5 thrown in for good measure.

The first of these is my new "ATM Finder", which uses Google Maps to plot ATMs on a map for you based on one of a number of parameters. If you are using a smartphone or have an HTML5-capable browser you can use the GeoPosition functions to plot the map based on your current location. This doesn't work that well for desktop PCs because the GeoPosition is usually based on where you ISP is located. But for smartphones, from my testing at least, it should work really well!

If you have any issues with it please comment below and let me know. I am considering release it as an app for various smartphones, but it currently works pretty well as a web-based application.
