This project has some interesting technical challenges. The client wanted a website to help people find their local tradesmen, not based on how much the company can spend on marketing and advertising to be placed first but purely on distance. A great idea, but how to implement such a feature?
Making it Happen
After some trial and error using a few different platforms, the best result came from accessing Googles powerful map API’s to work out distances between the end-users Postcode and the tradesmen from the search category.
It took some tweaking to get the system to load the results without waiting minutes for it to do all the calculations but even that fell into place with some fun algorithm work.
