web service for all public Facebook places in a geographic area via Graph api

Cancelled

Job Description

The project is to write a web service (preferably python but will consider alternatives) to list the <count> most 'popular' 'places' by checkins (and possibly other criteria) near a specific location. Something like

popularPlaces?lat=<lat>&lon=<lon>&limit=<count>

The FB graph api to use to find out location of interest is

https://graph.facebook.com/search?type=place&center=37.768909,-122.481407&distance=10000&fields=name,id,category,likes,checkins&limit=500&access_token=

This will return places of interest near a geographical location.
The service should return the JSON from the request in sorted order by "popularity". Initially this can be the number of checkins.
