We developed ZIP2kml for our Chem-Dry franchise clients so that they could better communicate with their customers. It allows more precise representation of service areas by allowing users to map specific zip codes. The prior solution involved using more general shapes like a circle to represent service areas, but our software allows you to achieve greater accuracy by displaying the boundaries of the specific zip codes entered.
When we developed this software for Chem-Dry Franchises, there was nothing like it available, so we at Peak Studios decided to make it available to you for download. It was developed in HTML/JS/CSS to give it a clean and easy to use interface, as well as fast processing of the zip codes. The zip code data is collected from the most complete data set of US zip codes provided by the US Census Bureau to give you the most accurate representation of the provided zip codes.
