Query by Map / Area?

  • Hello there. I’m trying to make a filterable database and one of the filters I need is to filter a list of contractors by the geographic area they cover. Basically like enter in a City or ZIP Code and show which contractors work within say 50 miles of it.

    Can this be done with ACF? And if so, how?

  • Hello Malachi,

    You will need more then just ACF to your filter work.

    I recommend you to use ACF map to save the location of your contractors and then use Google’s API “Distance Matrix” to filter the results on your query.

    P.s.: Sorry about my english
