Hi,

Sorry that this topic is not really rails-specific, but I happen to be

implementing it in rails. I’m trying to implement a common scenario,

where you get a comprehensive list of states/provinces, cities, and

zip/postal codes, and you find nearby cities based on a specified

location, like on some of the dating sites. I have no clue where to

start, I’m not even sure what keywords I should use to search. If

anyone can point out to me how this is usually done, I would really

appreciate it.

Thanks!

Bob
