    Converting Zip Codes to Lat/Long

    Does anyone know of a method to convert zip codes to latitude/longitude? I was going to try an write a vb routine to create a bunch of pushpins and then use some method to derive the lat and lon from each pushpin. Is there a better way?

    Thanks, dw

    Short of buying them from somewhere, your approach with MapPoint seems reasonable..

    Thanks for the affirmation. Yeah..that is what I ended up doing last night. It wasn't too bad. In fact, I used the code from an article on this site to accomplish this.

    thanks!
