I’m developing a backend server (in Laravel) that stores “venues” along with lat/long position.
Now in the client apps (Android/iOS) there will be a search box, the search will look up for venue information but I’d also love that search for places/location for example:
New York place 2,
Plaza New York,
New Plazaand so on.
New York #340(street), and so on (like in Google Maps apps)
Now the venue search part is easy (with Laravel Scout) because i have the data, but I don’t know how to pull map data that doens’t exist in my database (like the one shown in Algolia Places), so, how could I use that data to return it to my clients?
I was thinking making api calls to the Google Maps/Places API to get results but I’d like to know if there is a better way.
