Our Nearby API is a powerful tool that enables developers to enhance location-based features in their applications. The Nearby API uses advanced geolocation technology to provide accurate and up-to-date information about nearby locations and users.
The Nearby API has two functionalities: finding the nearest users, and finding the nearest geofences within a radius. Choose the option that suits your use-case best.
Find nearest user
Find the closest users either to a specific location, or to a specific user. Use the data to feed your dispatch software, streamline deliveries, and more!
Find nearest geofence
Find the closest geofences either to a specific location, or to a specific user. A useful feature across many industries namely delivery, ride-hailing, or retail.
Find the closest user to a specific location, or to a specific user.
It's handy for finding the nearest courier or driver to a user's location, or to find a relative on a family tracking app.
Calling the Nearby User API can be used in combination with the Trips API automatic trip detection feature, to create a Dispatch functionality. This is not a method Roam offers, but it is a way in which the APIs can function together.
Find the closest geofence to a specific location, or to a specific user. Ideal for finding which restaurants deliver to your location on a food delivery app.
Finding Nearby Geofences can be paired with the many different types of Geofences we offer in order to create more specific use cases. For example, finding nearby Geofences only active during certain hours of a specific day.
