Type Can be used to filter out certain kinds of locations, in nearest list and show different icons on a map

Optional Char [See Example 5]

TypeFilter will optionally filter out records from the nearest list. You could use "A" for major stores, "B" small stores and "C" for Petrol stations. Then if displayed on map they could all have different Pins. The actual list returned could only include "AB", so the petrol stations would not be listed.

This field could also be loaded with codes, which relate to qualifications. Then the service is called with the type code (qualification code) to product a list of nearest consultants with curtail qualifications.
Area Allows you to display all Stores in a certain area.

Optional String (2)

To display a map for Area simple call theGetNearestToPostCodeTemplateAndMapwith ExtraFlags="AreaCode=Area" the TargetPostcode should be set to center the map
