Zip Code Search Advice


O

Oscar

I use FP2000 to manage a couple websites. One is a non-profit group that has
members spread around the country. They would like to add a search function
based on zip code, to allow members to locate other members within xx miles.
It seems to be a common search function used by corporate websites with
national store locations.

I've had a little experience with FP's built-in search function, as well as
with cgi scripting for searching simple databases, but I don't have a clue
how to go about relating distance to a comparison of two zip codes. Is this
type of information available somewhere? Any advice on how to get started is
very much appreciated. Thanks,
Oscar

Someone was talking about this not too long ago here on the ng. Try USPS website, I know they have some free resources there - some pay ones too.
