Google drive distance?

Hello There!

I know there is a Google API out there for maps, but has anyone figured out how to send Google two zip codes and have the over the road driving miles return? If not Google, has someone figured out another way to get something like this done?

Google has more information on the directions part of the Google Maps API here:

At the very bottom there's a section called: Handling Returned Directions

It is possible using a macro that uses the google webservice to import the xml driving description (and distance), for example:

For the distance and minutes you don't need a partial reload, but for the description (both text and coordinates) i would prefer to use one (import the description in a table). If I have some spare time I will try to integrate this in my current Google Maps+ example.

I found some spare time today and created an example of a QlikView 9 Route planner. I've posted it in the Share QlikViews section. Please let me know if it works and if this is what you were looking for.
