Area code to search by proximity to that location. Additional search
criteria can be added to search your database on one or many other fields
as well as distance. Search results may be sorted in any order based on
distance or the data in each database record.

Pricing starts at $200 for US support or $350 for US and Canada. 5-Pack

The CGI also integrates easily with other CGIs or plug-ins, enabling you to
continue using your tags and programming for MGI, Lasso, FMPro, WebSiphon,
NetCloak, PHP, Perl, etc.
