    FindNearby or QueryCircle

    I'm trying to programatically find a list of POIs closest to a given lat/long in VB.NET. For example, given lat/long, what is the closest gas station. I'd also like to take it a step further and find the closest brand (Exxon for example). Can I use the built-in POIs as the dataset for the querycircle method?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    I'm not sure about the QueryCircle, but it is easy to test is a small test app, but FindNearby does returns all points of interest as this is what you wnats.
