Given GPS coordinates, I to determine if they are in NYC, and (hopefully) zip code, street address, and other related information. I would like the GPS data to 3 decimal places.

My dream output is a table: GPS-coor , zip-code, street address

More generally, given the 'administrative name' of a locality, I would like to be able to extract the corresponding data.

I'm early in my project and have no idea how to proceed.

this is called reverse geocoding. search for "reverse geocoding" on this web site, you might find the answer you need.

Thanks. It looks like I've got most of what I need. Now I need to learn KML so I can use it.
