Street Address Validation Using ASP.Net

Posted on 2009-02-10

Hi all-
I am writing an ASP.Net application that uses Visual Basic as the programming language.  The application needs to validate United States addresses entered by the user, base on the State and Zip code.  Could Google Web Services be used to accomplish this?  If so, how?  If using Google Web Services is not the correct route.  Is there another alternative?

    You have to show a google map on your (public) website when you use the geocoding webservice. offers a similar service.

    Fraunholz, thank you for your reply.  Do you have an example on how I would use this?

    Yahoo offers a geocoder service, too.  I do not have an ASP example (only PHP, sorry, and Yahoo is a PHP machine) but you may find this page useful:

    It is a RESTful interface, so the code to use it is VERY easy to get working.

    Best regards, ~Ray

    This video demonstrates how to use each tool, their shortcuts, where and when to use them, and how to use the keyboard to improve workflow.
