Location Match Condition

Description

This looks for a type of location or locations within a defined range of an origin point. As an example, you could look for a coffee shop near the user. The coffee shop it finds will be different depending on where the user is when this Condition is evaluated. If the user is in Vancouver, Berlin or somewhere else, it will look for a coffee shop close by.

Ranges can be added to the Condition to ensure that the user is within a certain distance from the location type. In our example, you could say this Condition will be true if a user is within 200 meters of a coffee shop.

The origin is the location is a GPS point from which it will look for the type of location(s) specified within the defined range. If no origin is specified, it will use the location of the user.
