# NearestTo

NearestTo[x]

is an operator form that yields Nearest[elems,x] when applied to a list elems.

NearestTo[x,n]

is an operator form that yields Nearest[elems,x,n] when applied to a list elems.

NearestTo[x,{n,r}]

is an operator form that yields Nearest[elems,x,{n,r}] when applied to a list elems.

# Details and Options

• NearestTo works for a variety of data, including numerical, geospatial, textual and visual, as well as dates and times.
• NearestTo[x][elems] is equivalent to NearestTo[elems,x].
• NearestTo[x,nr][elems] is equivalent to NearestTo[elems,x,nr], where nr is an integer n or a pair {n,r}.
• NearestTo[x][nf] for a NearestFunction object nf is equivalent to nf[x].
• NearestTo[x,nr][nf] for a NearestFunction object nf is equivalent to nf[x,nr], where nr is an integer n or a pair {n,r}.
