Visti Spatial Search
 

Visti Spatial Search

While walking to the grocery store I had an idea: could I implement spatial searching in Visti[a]? When I got home I sat down and looked at the API reference and the code - in that order - and was given a late Christmas gift from past me: I had already implemented spatial indexing.

So I quickly wrote up a small Javascript function that will launch a search for any item within 1km of the browser's position. Great if you either want to find out more about the object in front of you, or want to find the nearest runestone. Go to Visti[b] and click on Near me to try it out.
