Version 1.2           Updated 8 Dec 2019           Approx 0.8 MB

This is a free example app I created to get a list of addresses & house price info for selected UK postcodes together with the geo-coordinates and a static Google map for that postcode

It is a cut down version of my commercial UK Postal Address Finder application.

The geocoordinates for the postcode are obtained using code similar to that by Christos Samaras in his excellent article: Geocoding using VBA & Google API
The site has a lot of useful code for Access and other platforms.

The address and house price data (where available) is extracted from freely available data downloaded from 192.com

The static Google map includes a marker indicating the postcode centre.

The map can be modified in various ways:
a)   nudged up/down/left/right
b)   zoomed in/out (on a 1-20 scale) where the default = 17
c)   the map style can be altered (roadmap/terrain/satellite/hybrid) with default =hybrid
d)   a full screen 'live' map can also be loaded

When the app is first loaded, you will be prompted to enter a valid Google maps API key (with billable info). This is required in order to use the app.

Click to download an ACCDE version of the app for use with 32-bit or 64-bit Access:

UK Postcodes Address Lookup  (32-bit ACCDE)

UK Postcodes Address Lookup  (64-bit ACCDE)

This application is supplied free as an Access 'executable' file (ACCDE)
This means that program code is NOT available for viewing.

If you would like full access to the program code, this can be purchased at a reasonable price.

An ACCDB file will be supplied with full program code so you can enter your own data, modify the application or use parts of it in your own applications.
