I am working on a project and I am pretty stuck. I would like to create a route based on directions. That is the easy part. Then do a search for a particular service, Gas Stations, Restaurants, Stores. I want the particular location along my route. My guess would be to create a buffer around my route (based on how far I would be willing to go off my route), and then clip the services that fall within the buffer. The issue with most searches is that when I do the search it gives me a radius search from my location or beginning location. I would like to find services along my route to help me choose the best location for a ce to stop.
I added a script, which is basically the Directions API. I like the way it is formatted with the options on the right. I am open to some ideas if anyone has any.
Thanks for your help.
