Imagine you are covering the United States with cell phone towers. Each tower has a range of 100 miles. The goal of this project is to identify where you will put each tower, trying to cover the country with as few towers as possible.
In other words, we want to identify the fewest number of United States cities that will cover the continental United States (when each are given a radius of 100 miles). This may not straightforward right away - I suggest you refer to either the attached screenshot or Google doc for a visual:

We are basically creating a mesh of geospatial coordinates within 100 miles of each other to envelope the continental United States, For each coordinate, we are looking for a city name, state, and latitude and longitude information.
New York, NY, 40.6974881,-73.979681
Philadelphia, PA, 40.1937313,-75.0102984
Atlantic City, NJ, 39.3766056,-74.4879281
Cites may overlap - but the goal is to identify the fewest number of cities as possible - so overlapping is not preferred.
In order to be considered for this project you must demonstrate a working understanding of the problem as defined above. Please provide a summary of your approach, including tools you will use, how you will verify your work, etc...
