Danke Hermann.

I am still planning to use something like this.

I have database with all dutch postcode with housenr's and longitudes 
and latitudes. This is now public information ordered some years ago by 
a Dutch Federal Judge as the post delivery appealed against this. But it 
is not easy to find the download, they hide it a bit.

Anyway i downloaded it as almost 1GB of csv data which turned into 
almost 8GB of database data. Took days to convert and upload it. It's 
around 6000 tables with also each around 6000 to 13000 entries.

Right now just used to find a place via postcode (LeitZahl) entry. And 
there some php examples on the web to calculate what you now have 
created, these calculations can be tricky.

(i know there are also online services for this with json data as reply, 
some for free until so many calls, but it's nice to be able to do it 

Will check it out in time, and hopefully to be used when i expand my 

Thanks a lot!
