use rgeo::{search, nearest};

search(44.353339_f32, -72.740231_f32);
// Some((0.0001186200820000013, Record { name: "Village of Waterbury", latitude: 44.34279, longitude: -72.74294, country: "US" }))

nearest(44.353_339_f32, -72.740_231_f32, 6);
// Some([(0.00011866877, Record { name: "Village of Waterbury", latitude: 44.34279, longitude: -72.74294, country: "US" }), (0.00049654034, Record { name: "Waterbury", latitude: 44.33783, longitude: -72.75623, country: "US" }), (0.0010441553, Record { name: "Town of Waterbury", latitude: 44.38513, longitude: -72.74602, country: "US" }), (0.009455653, Record { name: "Town of Duxbury", latitude: 44.30492, longitude: -72.82456, country: "US" }), (0.0100118, Record { name: "Town of Moretown", latitude: 44.25658, longitude: -72.71475, country: "US" }), (0.010925336, Record { name: "Moretown", latitude: 44.25089, longitude: -72.76095, country: "US" })])
