zip code radius

#1 16. August 2009, 01:53
I am looking to provide a radius search that allows a member to see what other members are in a specific area surrounding them. I installed the google map api but have not been able to figure out the zip code search for the radius.

I think this is not the right place for such a question. You would be better off asking it in the ]
google maps api group. I doubt there are many (if any) members here with experience in the Google maps api.

I do I do, well sorta to a point. It just involves the normal geoip/geocode api and coomparing the lat/lon against the stored.

Added 5 minutes later:

While this is for a store locator, this is the exact basic of what you want.

It has everything you need to do what you want.

Thank you this helped me out.

Everything is setup but my only issue is I need to place another insert into sql command to push the location data from the user profile to a second table "markers" to populate the radius search location database.

Is there an easier way?

Why not just query the users Table?

I tried this by modifying the usermap plugin but I am getting no search results. Your idea sounds good but shouldnt I first use the geocoder in the usermap plugin? when I do that it stores that lat log in its table with adress and name. The users table only has adress which need to be converted before I run the actualy query.
