Impossible,

Although probable that you could get the city from the zipcode and then you could get the GPS lat long of the bounds of the city from some online database somewhere, so that's a possoibilty for you to look into

Hi blundell,

I have got the solution of finding lat long vie zip code.
by using Geocoder class we can do this easily but sometimes it doesn't show any thing for paricular zipcode other wise it works fine.
so it is possibal.


with thanks
