starting_point = { "latitude": "53.339428", "longitude": "-6.257664" },
range = '100',
unit = 'km',
filepath = __dirname+'/data.json';

//example data.json
data.json = [{ "latitude": "53.038056", "longitude": "-7.653889" }]

let distances = geoDistances(filepath, starting_point, range, unit);
console.log(distances);

Usage

geo-distances(start, end, [options])

filepath = __dirname+'/data.json', //remember to provide an array of Objects
unit = 'mi',
range = '10000';

let geoDistances = require('geo-distances')
let distances = geoDistances(filepath, starting_point, range, unit);

//example data.json
data.json = [{ "latitude": "50.9096375", "longitude": "-4.043701" }];
