Hello all!

I'm in the process of creating a site and looking for an open-source tool that will allow me to incorporate zip-code radius search on the site. Here is an example of what I'm looking for: www.yelp.com

What I'm trying to do is have my clients/customers type in their zip code to find the service closet to where they are. (i.e. I type in 33330 and it will show me the services 10 miles from where I typed in my zip code)

It's tough to find something like this. I need your help.

Thanks Code Project Family!

Use the yelp API http://www.yelp.com/developers/documentation/v2/overview

This is not Open Source but it is a good source of data to build your own software.

Component to get Latitude & Longitude from street address

Below are two other sources of data to get Latitude & Longitude. The Zip Code one will not be as accurate for your purposes as the street address one. A company that I used to be associated with in the late 1990s used this street address data for a similar purpose.

Others available at Catalog.CodeProject.com[^]. Search for geocoding.
