New Methods Added to Postal Address Verification

CDYNE has added two new methods to the Postal Address Verification API to allow users to get zip codes within a radius, as well as searching for zip codes within a county with FIPS county code data. With the GetZipCodesWithinDistance operation, CDYNE Postal Address Verification users can add a zip code radius search, or proximity search to their websites.

The second operation is GetZipCodesForFips. Federal information processing standards codes (FIPS codes) are a standardized set of numeric or alphabetic codes issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to ensure uniform identification of geographic entities through all federal government agencies.
