Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


Hello. I started using OSM, great services and all, but I'm struggling on one point. I have an JS object that contains a list of places, with coordinates etc. I have my actual location with the geolocation API. I want to do a research within 300m and see if some of those places are into the radius. So I have found how to call the "radius", with the bounding box, but I can't find how to simply get the 4 needed coordinates from my position (assuming I'm at the center of the circle/rectangle, of course). If anyone can help me, it'd be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: So, I've found a piece of code that convert two sets of lat/long in meters, so I compare all my values. Not the most efficient thing ever, but for my need, it was alright. I let my code here, in case anybody needs it someday.

so position map on the area you want and click on export. then you can see the lat lons of top, left right and bottom

Yeah, but I was talking about doing it automatically in my code. Thanks anyway.
