Dealer Zip code based distance locator

Recommended Posts

I am currently tackling this project. It will save me quite a bit of time if I don't merge it with osCommerce.. however, I will do so and make it a contribution if there is enough interest. To see a sample of this currenlty in action you can go to google and look through the results for "dealer zip code locator" at various implentations.

Where are you getting a copy of the zip code list and latitude/longitude's for each zip?

 

I'd love to get a copy if you have one for the us.

I would love to have this modification!! I am selling wireless and have limited markets. It would be great to have this so a customer can check and see if we are available in there area, and to find a store nearest them. Is this something you are still working on? Thanks!!

 

Boy would this be grande!!! :D :D :D

I'm no programmer, but would it be that much harder to implement this into OSC? I could just create an additional page specific for the "zip code checker", wrap it with OSC like I have other pages on my site. I'm not sure how you put the "dealer/store/what your trying to locate" info in but it wouldn't neccessarily have to be encorporated into the admin in OSC. Then I could link to the zip checker page from my default or wherever I want. I guess maybe you are talking about tying it into the SQL database....

 

Just thinking here....thanks!!! :wink:
