ZipDy -- An Elegant Distance Calculator between any two zipcodes

Recently, a friend asked me if there is an easy way to calculate the distance between two zipcodes of US. I was suggesting him that he can give a try on Google Maps API. A little more deeper research on the Internet gave me a nice opensource tool called ZipDy which is based on PostGreSQL database to store all zipcodes and distances.

You can download ZipDy from here.

Available Languages:

  • C
  • PHP
  • Perl
Main Features:

  1. Calculate the distance between any two zipcode
  2. Query the database for all address records within a specified mile direction of a particular zipcode.
Just thought I would share this finding with other interested developer fraternity too.
