  1. Cities near another city

    Lets consider that use case: I search on my application which allows to get doctors available in a specific city. A scenario would be to have 0 result on city I requested but the alternative would be to provide doctors available on neighbors city (on a specific radius ) of the one we queryed.

    The idea is to add an GET method allowing to get neighbors city of another city by passing the city name (or its zipcode) and and radius

    Not 100% clear on what is being asked here. Most cities do not have borders that align with other cities. Many have open area between city boundaries (i.e. rural area). So finding a neighboring city that shares a border isn’t really an option. A couple of options, we could find other nearby cities within a search radius, it that is suitable. Or in the case of looking for doctors, you could simply do a radius search for doctors. That said, a better option when it comes to searching for points of interest is to do a time based search. For example, find all doctors within a 15 minute drive. Most people are more concerned about how long something takes than how far something is. There is a tutorial showing this concept here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-maps/tutorial-ev-routing
