I have been trying to figure out a way to calculate the distance between two locations in PowerBI when I only have adresses and ZIP Codes.
The only approach I have come across here in the Forum to solve that is:
1) Convert the ZIP into LAT and LONG;
2) Use the cosine formula for perimeter with the Earth radius to find the distance in a "straight line".
Problem is I do not have access to an open source (for Brazil) that could provide me with the LAT/LONG data against ZIP.
PS: It seemed logical to me that PowerBI would be able to give me the LAT and LONG parameters since I have the location.
Does anyone know a way to calculate the distance only with the Zip Code or know an open source with LAT/LONG against ZIP for Brazil?
Thanks a lot.
