Subject: Re: Help: distance between zip codes
I just happened to see a posting on SAS-L in the past 2 weeks from Alan
Qualex Consulting which stated they had a "free" tool called ZipCoder
be located at http://www.qlx.com/tools.htm
I remember looking at this product and I believe it had latitude and
longitude data stored with
zipcodes, and one of the features in this product demo was to calculate
the distance between
cities which I am sure had to be done using the latitude/longitudes.
I recommend you look at their code to do this and maybe contact Al
Gilman at www.qlx.com
to see what/how they did this.
Hope this helps you.
