 Looking for GPS database
Hi,

I'm working on a project to calculate the distance between two addresses.
Does anyone know of a vendor that sells GPS data (mainly lat. & long.) ?

Thanks,

Shew

I did this as an experiment for a web site.  I just figured out a rough
average for the distance for one degree latitude and one degree
longitude.  As long as all addresses are in the US it works pretty well.  
Then for every address put into the database I would hit one of those
mapping web sites with a request and strip the lat and long from the
response and store it in the db with the record.  If you are looking to
do bulk you will need something local.  Try contacting one of those map
sites.  They can probably point you in the right direction.
