Resources for Geo Location application

I'm new to developing apps for blackberry and is planning on creating an app where persons can view specific locations around them (in a certain radius). I am planning on using webworks with php and a mysql database. I have the locations already in the mysql database.

 

Where can i find resources to read up on creating this application?

with an example for playbook, however the blog said it wont work with the bb simulator. is there anyway to create an app and test it with the simulator that uses geo location?

You can use Ripple to simulate a location.
