You're right. I suppose either GPS co-ordinates or traditional longitude and latitude would be more than sufficient. It's just getting the data -- the zip codes and postcodes
(and any others that other countries use)
to correlate with either of the two aforementioned.
I don't think it's going to be easy!
However, once you have that data, the zip codes and postcodes become one
(not in a Buddhist sense)
and become irrelevant insofar as the algorithm is concerned. Those codes are used to retrieve L&L or GPS co-ordinates and the system uses those to calculate distance.
