Can I search by distance - or, a feature that would be usefule TimHare 7/1/12 12:14 PM
Here's a feature I'd like - does it exist?  

I'd like to be able to say "search for 'X' within 'N' miles/kilometers of location 'L'

In my ideal feature, the default for location 'L' would be wherever the map is centered.

In my ideal a layer with a circle showing the radius of 'N' would be drawn ('N' would be an 'as the crow flies' distance, not on roadways or whatever), with a "handle" (a dot like when changing routes on directions) I can drag to increase/decrease the radius. 

My use case  - a real estate listing, from North Carolina, which said '6 miles from Lake Junaluska Conference Center' and had a road name, but no town.   I would like to say 'Search for that road within 6 miles of Lake Junaluska Conference Center, Lake Junaluska, NC'
