Step 1: Create Laravel App :

If you already have a newer app, you need to get the latest version of the application using the Belo command, run the following command

Step 2: Create Route :

Here we create a way to get the nearest location from the latitude and long example

Goto routes/web.php file and edit bellow code

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\AreaController;
| Web Routes
| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

php artisan make:controller AreController

Goto app/Http/Controllers/AreController.php file and you have users table with lat and long columns. also add some dummy records on table as well.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Model\User;
class LocationController extends Controller
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function index(Request $request)
        $users = User::select(""
                        ,DB::raw("6371 * acos(cos(radians(" . $lat . ")) 
                        * cos(radians( 
                        * cos(radians(users.lon) - radians(" . $lon . ")) 
                        + sin(radians(" .$lat. ")) 
                        * sin(radians( AS distance"))

Step 4: Run Laravel App :
