Google Maps API and Addresses in FileMaker

hello, it has been many years since I've played with google maps API and now I have a challenge, which I am hoping someone out there has already done something with via FileMaker:

 

I have a number of contact records with addresses - suppliers of a product

and

I have other contacts with addresses - clients

 

and the quest is simple, when the client's address is entered, the nearest suppliers need to be shown on a map.

 

I am guessing that the geocode of the suppliers can be retrieved fairly easily using googlemaps API, but I don't know how to plot the nearest suppliers...

 

any helpful hints or links would be useful... thank you so much.
