Amazing ! Thanks
Very useful tool, thank you :)
Im trying to create this myself using dutch postcodes. I was wondering if you actually have a database full of postcodes with which you check the possible distance (with Geocoder) or if there is another (easier?) way to do this?

Hi Jessie, Please have a look at Find Population on Map.

Is there a way we can see the population within a given area? Be so helpful if there was!
By Jessie on 09/09/2014
Is there an app for this as it is a great tool!

easy to print facility
Great tool-I would also be interested in postcodes as well. Is this possible on this tool?
On 12/06/2014, I guess you would need to do this manually.

We will be looking in to London Underground stations.
By Free Map Tools on 29/04/2014
I'm looking to output a list of all of the London Underground stations within a radius. I realise you might not have the data to do this, but if it were possible to switch on Google maps "public transit" layer I could do this by eye.
I can't print from the full screen map with a right click. How else can I do it. Is a good tool though.
