hi,

i'm working on the website for a client of mine.... he has a number of dealers which stock his products...

my client wants users to be able to enter their zip code and for the nearest dealer to be shown...

so we have a list of maybe 15-20 dealers, each of which i will have their  address and/or zip code.

is this something google maps can do?

if not, is there any suggestions for how i can accomplish this?

the client is based in the USA.

thanks

Dog

Google Maps can definitely do this sort of thing.  You'll want to geocode all of your addresses, and use the Google Maps API to create an interactive map.

There's a LOT of detail on the Google Maps API website.
