I need an experienced PHP developer who is familiar with zipcode lookups. I believe we need to obtain a zip code table from the US Post Office for this, that contains longitude/latitude.
We have a database (over 500) names & addresses of businesses. We would like to load our businesses and create a search where the user puts in his address and has the ability to search for businesses that are closest to him.
We need to order by closest business first.
Please let me know what you think it will take - time/cost, and if we have to purchase any zipcode lists.
