I need to find the closest point on a road to a external point. I need to do it without downloading the data (I don't know if this is possible in Google Maps) nor using PostgreSQL. I know some Python wrappers to Overpass for using OpenStreetMap, where is easy to use the function 'around', which is I need. But is possible to do the same for the free API of Google Maps?
I've asked a similar question in Getting closest point on road to point in OpenStreetMap using Python?, but with OpenStreetMap. What about Google Maps?
