    New to GIS. Radius?

    I've been asked to program a feature into our website that allows a user to put in their zip code and then find a list of institutions of higher learning (which would be in our database) that is within a given radius that the user specifies.

    What data do I need to do this? What software do I need to do this? Will any of the data need to be purchased? Can mappoint do this? How do I get started and what are the approximate costs.

    I appreciate your help.

    MapPoint, the desktop product priced around $250, cannot be integrated into a public web site, doing so violates the EULA. (technically I think it may be OK on an Intranet if you buy licenses for everybody)

    There is a MapPoint web service for use on the Internet, I believe pricing starts at $8000 and up.

    I saw some of the questiions regarding cold fusion, and I think Perl in the forum, but its not legal. $8000 too pricey and Web Services is for .Net. I'm still in stone age.

    Could I use the desktop version to calculate the radius for every zip code combination in the state and then store it in a database. Then access the distances from the database by zip code rather than Mappoint?
