Zip Code Radius

In SQL with an Access interface, a user has the option to select a zip code and the radius from that zip code.  After entering this information, a list of individuals who meet that criteria is returned.  

 

I am trying to replicate this piece in Power BI desktop.  Is it possible?

Re: Zip Code Radius

We did something similar

I used the following articles as the basis: https://radacad.com/dynamic-distances-in-power-bi and https://dataveld.com/2019/03/20/display-points-within-a-distance-radius-on-a-power-bi-map/ , and the lat/long for zipcodes from http://download.geonames.org/export/zip/ 

 

Hope this helps,

Re: Zip Code Radius

Hi @proudmama ,

Do you mean that you just want to import the data that meets your requirements instead of importing all data?

If so, you can open the 'Advanced options' and enter your requirements with SQL statement.

Re: Zip Code Radius

Thank you for the recommendation.  I did see that but it doesn't meet my needs.

Re: Zip Code Radius

I have a table of zip codes that have the lat\long on it.  The way that I have it designed in the Access front end is, a user selects a zip code and enters the radius in miles.  This information is passed to a stored procedure on a SQL server via a pass through query and the results are returned to Access.  

 

I'm looking to do something similar in Power BI.  

 

Thank you!
