    Getting a ZipCode out from a point in MapMarker or MapXtreme 2005

    Hello everyone,

    Does anyone knows how to get a zipcode out from a point in MapMarker or in MapXtreme 2005? I have a MapMarker v13.1 for geocoding the target site and the MapXtreme 2005 for map displaying. I'm trying to pass in the coordinate/point and in return will be a zipcode. Does anyone here familiars with MapMarker/MapXtreme and knows how to get a zipcode out from a point can guide me through this? Thanks in advance.

    What is your development environment? Classic ASP, .NET, etc?

    Re: Getting a ZipCode out from a point in MapMarker or MapXtreme 2005

    I did a project with this just in the last few months, so I should be able to help you... however you know how it is with technology, you figure something out once and then immediately forget it.

    How far have you gotten so far? I assume both products and installed. Is MapMarker running as a service? I think that's where I had the most difficulty.. getting MapMarker Server up and running properly and talking to it..

    Re: Getting a ZipCode out from a point in MapMarker or MapXtreme 2005

    I have both products installed on the server and on my development machine. I can connect to the MapMarker server for geocoding the target site and displaying an object on the map, those are working fine for me. Now I have a coordinate/point and I want to get a zipcode out from a point. Is there an object in MapMarker or in MapXtreme that you can call and pass in a point for a zipcode? Or do you have any sample code on how to get a zipcode from a point in either the MapMarker or MapXtreme? Again thanks for responding

    Re: Getting a ZipCode out from a point in MapMarker or MapXtreme 2005

    OK, I understand now. MapMarker is not going to help with this... here's an old KB article, but I think it still applies to the most recent version. They never added the capability to do reverse geocoding.

    Knowledge Base - Document - Is reverse geocoding possible with MapMarker?

    However, the article does suggest using a zip code boundary file (which should ship with MapXtreme I think) and just doing a simple geo-query to determine what zip code polygon the point is in..

    Hopefully this points you in the right direction!
