This is a webservice that allows us to map US ZIP codes to a pair of coordinates. 

Usage is very simple, just query the service with a ZIP code as a parameter:
<tt>http://localhost/zip2coords/?zip=90210</tt>

And receive the coordinates in JSON format:
<pre>
{"latitude":"34.0901000","longitude":"-118.4065000"}
</pre>
Data comes from 
<a href="http://download.geonames.org/export/zip/">GeoNames ZIP codes</a>. To build the MySQL database run the <tt>database/geonames.sh</tt> shell script. It'll download the required data, setup the database and load the data into it.

Requires PHP with PDO and JSON support.
