How to write a script to find a 10 mile radius of zip codes
What are the script steps and how do I write the script to pull in and perform a saved find of a 10 mile radius of zip codes?
Are you able to get latitude and longitude values for each zipcode. Others that have posted here have been able to acquire that information and then there are formulas that calcuate the distance between two sets of Lat/long values.
i remember asking about this too but was not able to finish. i obtained a list of latitude and longitude values corresponding with each zip code. how would i take this info and incorparate it to populate data found within a given range?
thank you in advanced.
ZipCalc measures distance between zipcodes and finds other zipcodes in a given radius. In addition, zipcode circles can be added or removed from the results. ZipCalc exports zipcode lists or SCF lists. It processes your mailing list, pulling out addresses that are not within a certain radius.
The demo version now ships with a zipcode data for the entire United States. The demo version works just like the registered version, but it will only return 20 zip codes when a search is completed. When you register, you get all of the zipcodes.
ah very cool.
once it is downloaded, how do you incorporate it into FM?
also, is there a way to do it directly through FM?
