First, what is geolocation? Here is a good explanation: “Geolocation is the identification or estimation of the real-world geographic location of an object, such as a radar source, mobile phone, or Internet-connected computer terminal. In its simplest form geolocation involves the generation of a set of geographic coordinates and is closely related to the use of positioning systems, but its usefulness is enhanced by the use of these coordinates to determine a meaningful location, such as a street address.” resource is Wikipedia
Okay, never thought I would be a fan of geolocation, it just became that annoying thing that popped up on some websites asking for permission to use geolocation. So if you are not a fan, you can always say no, or not allow, and you can still use the site that you are on. For any device to geolocate, one needs to give the website permission to see the location of your device.
So, here is a quick definition why the feature is available to use on TAB Street, helping you find something to eat within 100 miles of your location. It’s really cool, cause you can set the radius/miles that you are interested in up to 100 miles.
Imagine you are at a brand new location that you decided to try out for the weekend and you don’t know the area. You are seriously hungry and you want to find something to eat, really soon. You don’t want to just try any restaurant and cross your fingers to see if they will accommodate your food allergies. Plus, you want the place that you want to eat really close by you don’t want to be driving any distance to find something. Pull out your phone or even other device you may use and go to TAB Street, allow the site to get your location, and you will have your options available for allergy free restaurants and gluten free restaurants and sometimes restaurants having information on both listed on their websites.. For another example, you are on the highway traveling to your favorite vacation spot and want to find something, simply allow the geolocation, set the radius, and other options if you like and you can find a restaurant. If you are not a fan of geolocation you can always pull up the LOCATION and chose the state that you are in and see what is available.
If you need answers quickly before you decide to try the restaurant, the phone numbers are there, just push/tap to call if you are on your phone doing the geolocating.
So, check out the options to see what is available.
