RYAN SCHENK EXPLAINS IT ALL!
When you’re looking for directions online using an online map program, the code running in the background is really intense. There are two steps: Geocoding and Driving Directions generation.
Geocoding is the process of taking a text string, in this case your zip code, and converting that into lat/lon coordinates.
Driving Directions, on the other hand, is the process of taking a lat/lon coordinate, and then, through the use of geomagnetic flux lines, normalized of course for solar storms, constructing a sort of computer model of a divining rod, which when coupled with a probabilistic finite automaton and run through an iterative simulation, can sense the interruptions of qi lifeforce caused by our highway system. Through a virtual meta-dowsing and coupled with a type of dynamic numerology, one can record the Mystical Path and True Will of this automaton’s divinations as it traverses the energy lines of a global-scale chiromancy. This is approximately a O( double exponential ) operation.
The good news is, Google Maps provides API services for driving directions, with geocoding built in!!
And there you have it!
