Basic book search

Finds the closest place and returns all books linked to that place (this is guaranteed to return at least one result so can be useful as a fallback if the within-radius search produces no results).

Accepts wgs84 latitude and longitude.

Example

https://www.mappit.net/bookmap/apis/?lat=55.9&lon=-3.1

Returns JSON response containing book titles, authors and urls.

Books within radius search

Returns all books within a given radius of a point (returns empty if no books are found).

Accepts wgs84 latitude and longitude and a search radius in km (max 200).

Example

https://www.mappit.net/bookmap/apis/?lat=55.9&lon=-3.1&radius=10

Returns JSON response containing book titles, authors and urls.
