Create Segment for Radius from Zip Code, based on Field not GeoIP
I'd like to create a segment and run the same sort of "radius" function that is available in the GeoIP section but in the fields section.
Essentially, I want to be able to select the field Zip Code, then ask for all zip codes in a 50 mile radius instead of having to input in hundreds of individual zip codes.
Hoping this would be something fairly easy to implement since the tech already exists for GeoIP, but would be so helpful for an account like us where the majority of our subscribers have provided a zip code as a field!
Any update on this?

Our team is in need of this exact technology and really hoping for a solution. Is there anyway we can get any alternative suggestions other than manually entering in the zip codes? Are there other plug-ins or apps that could support this?
I think that algorithm already exists, because it is used in the GeoIP section. Am I right on that, or getting it wrong?

I believe this requires a longitude/latitude/zip table and an algorithm to triangulate between them. Other systems I've used that implemented this had a physical geo upload that the customer needed to maintain.
