    I do not know how to do it strictly by lat/lon. However, I think you may have better luck with looking at the zipcode. There are databases out there which list the town name, county and FIPS for zip codes.

    No there is nothing in Pushpin Tool for doing that.

    John - I actually use your add in to do a work around that gets me there. Essentially, I map an Access database of zip codes, which includes city names, county names, area codes, etc and then draw a shape around the desired zone and export with Pushpin Tool. On of the results is a listing of zip codes and the towns they represent.

    The data I map includes the following elements: Zip code, City name, County Name, Lat/Lon of center point of zip code, etc. When I map this file, then use Pushpin Tool, the data that is extracted is Zip code, City name, County name, Lat, Lon, etc.

    I am not sure if I answered your question, but I hope it helps.

    Sorry, I misunderstood your question. No, I don't think you can get anything back more than you supply. My info is mapped by linked Access files that have the common thread of zip code. Sorry I could not be of more help.
