    Street Names etc...

    Hi,
    I have seen in several programs you can get street names from a point (like a pushpin).

    So for example if I have a pushpin at x,y how do i find the nearest road/street? (like PushpinA is 0.25 Km north of road A123)

    Thanks,
    Milo

    Hi,

    if you place is not on a street then you best make a circle with a given fadius (I posted some Delphi code a while ago). Then on that radius check street every 5 meter for example, also start radius wiht eg 5 meter. When no street foundincrease radius with 5 meter, then again look at circumfence every 5 meter again until a given maximum of course...
