Description

If you search a profile in say a small city or town, you don't get to see profiles that are registered in other districts very nearby. It would be better if the search includes profiles within a certain (specified?) distance from the center of the town/city. The screenshots below show the difference between a search using "Antwerp" location based search versus a search using map boundaries.

In our forums on www.bewelcome.org, there were more user requesting this feature. Maybe someone will implement it in 0.1.2?

I don't fully understand. You already can search by map boundary. If I search for a specific location (Antwerp) I expect to only get those results. However one might think of adding a "and sorrounding" next to "by location" and then make it a map boundary search.
