the radius search for craigslist is done

craigsy

the document sent by craigslist regarding our service is linked below. as of now, i know of no practical way to add radius and zip code area search to the craigslist interface. and based on what i've read it is not something worth pursuing. a friend is creating a multi-classified search with zip and radius, it just won't include craigslist.

for anyone looking for geolocation and zip-to-zip distance calculations, you can start with a free zip database from maxmind. the actual calculations, in my opinion, are best done with a broad mysql query followed by php exact radius calculations. this articleis a great explanation.

i would suggest you check it out, and steer clear of craigslist, you can read the complaints they had here. thank you to everyone!
