Convert GPS latitude longitude pairs to a US zip code.

Quick Start

npm install gps2zip


var gps = require('gps2zip');
var latitude = 30.2669;
var longitude = 97.7428;
gps.gps2zip(latitude, longitude);
// returns 78701

Unit tests

node tests/basic.js

You can get full street addresses using the Google Maps Reverse Geocoding API:
