    In a search response I see a distance parameter. What type of unit is this?

    Just looked up startbucks in NYC and I get

    items: [ { position: [ 40.74923 , -73.98395 ] distance: 113 title: Starbucks averageRating: 0.0 category: { id: coffee-tea title: Coffee/Tea href: http://demo.places.nlp.nokia.com/pla...xoqIWfxWA5DuMQ type: urn:nlp-types:category } icon: http://download.vcdn.nokia.com/p/d/p...gories/23.icon vicinity: 373 5th Ave ↵
    New York NY 10016 ↵
    USA having: [ ] type: urn:nlp-typeslace href: http://demo.places.nlp.nokia.com/pla...xoqIWfxWA5DuMQ id: 840dr5ru-f53290f0ecf946f8b1a328b5d1bec785 } ,

    I am wondering what is distance paramter? Is it in meters? And where is this type of thing documented?

    docs would be at: http://developer.here.com/places#_48...Findex.html%3F anyway, I'm not certain on which item you are asking for, so can not check from docs what they would say about the parameter value type.

    Distance is in meters, measured from the search context, it is documented here: http://developer.here.com/docs/place...pe-search.html.

    For more on how the context is calculated, please look here: http://developer.here.com/docs/place...-contexts.html. Please be aware, that in case of a location context supplied by X-Map-Viewport, the distance field will be missing.
