I'm building an app where a user may want to have their request visible in a specific location (example: food within 10 miles of my location). can I have some suggestions on how to best achieve this? I understand many options are available. I would like
it to be as user friendly as possible. I do understand that i would like to save long. lat. (international addresses may differ from US format) I would also like to make suggestions (example: gas stations near coachella) having all users use the same address
or Long lat for coachella would be ideal. my first idea is as follows
any feedback or resources would be appreciated, I'm sure there are external API's that may help with this as well but I do not have experience with any.

As you mentioned, you can retain coordinates (longitude and latitude) of users' location or any place that you should display in your system, which could help you get the information of specified location or display specified place(s) on map by using some Geolocation
Besides, according to your description, it seems that your app should be able to recognize/understand user intent and extract key word(s) or phrase(s) inside the utterance, you could try to use Language
Understanding service (LUIS).

i would like to obtain long lat information. in my current iteration its just a concept, but if im understanding correctly what you are saying is to use a giolocation API and it would help me with that? and yes "LUIS" would be a big help
at this point. thank you for the feedback

Yes, some Geolocation APIs/libraries could help us convert addresses into LatLng coordinates, and then we can can use it to place markers or position the map etc.
