Get location of phone and look for other app users in the area


I have a system which allows business people to network, what i am looking for is some code that will take the phones location from the gps and look at the database to see if anybody else is within the specified area. For this to work i envisage that the phone continually adds it's data to a database and looks for others who are are within a specified distance.

Any ideas or suggestions on how this can work or the best approach would be appreciated.
