Do you need to allow visitors to your website to search for stores, people, or dealers within a radius from a ZIP Code? ZIP Code Download has a solution that is not only easy to implement but also very affordable!
ZIP Code Download provides the raw data and programming tools you'll need to build a locator tool that completely integrates into your current system or website. Our products work 'behind the scenes' and are completely invisible to the user, so you have complete control over the look and feel.
Most of our customers allow their users to start by entering their ZIP Code and selecting from a dropdown of distances in miles (there is no limit on the radius with our API). You send the ZIP Code and distance to our API.
The API takes the information and calculates the distance between the submitted ZIP Code and the other ZIP Codes in our database using the latitude and longitude coordinates. It then returns a list of ZIP Codes that fall within the radius and the distance of each ZIP Code from the center ZIP Code.
You can then take this list, compare it with the stores, people, or dealers in your database, and display to your user the records that fall within the radius the user selected.
In order to implement this solution from ZIP Code Download, you'll need an experienced programmer, a database with ZIP Codes and latitude/longitude coordinates, and our Distance & Radius Programming API . While our products come in many different versions, these are the recommended versions for this solution. Other versions can be viewed on each product page.
These are just a few of the reasons why you should choose ZIP Code Download:
