From a Tally form I obtain a city name.
From that city name, i wish to use Make to calculate which hospital would be the nearest and display its address.
I have an issue using the Google APIs, could someone walk me through the steps to exploit this city name and obtain the nearest hospital address ?
Thank you !

Have you set up a connection following this help center article to “Get Google Maps API Key” and then “Establish a connection between Google Maps and Make”?
Using this page for your Google Cloud project (https://console.cloud.google.com/google/maps-apis/api-list), you need to enable the following
You need to enable the following APIs to make all of the Google Maps modules work:
- Geocoding API
- Maps Elevation API
- Time Zone API
- Directions API
- Distance Matrix API
- Map Static API
- Places API
Note: To enable these APIs, your account must have billing enabled. You can enable billing at console.cloud.google.com/project/_/billing/enable.
How do you define “nearest”? If a city has 3 hospitals within its boundaries, which one would you define as “the nearest”? Nearest to your home, which has a specific coordinate, or nearest to the center of the city?
