     Online Demo at This is an online directory that Geocodes entries by City and State or by Zip Code with their latitude and longitude. Searches can be performed by City/State or by Zip and results are ordered by distance to the search proximity (closest locations first to farthest locations last using the Greater Circle Distance Formula). The source code included here uses a read only acount on my database. If you use the code for something other than learning, please download the database files from the demo site....I have made all of the necessary data available to you as text files that can be imported into SQL Server.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
