Jeff, it doesn't really take in to account drive time. More of a line of sight circle. You may be better looking at : How Far Can I Travel.

How close are concentric circles and realistic drive times? (NJ)

Steven, an option would be to use Find ZIP Codes Inside a Radius and use it twice then find the ZIPs common to both radius.
By Free Map Tools on 13th December 2017
Would it be possible to generate a list of ZIP codes inside an area where two circles overlap?
By Steven on 13th December 2017
Hi, you can use https://www.freemaptools.com/how-far-is-it-between.htm to find the distance between the places. So 130km between NTY and Philadelphia.
The make the circles on this page half that or a bit more to get some overlap.
So, 80km radius gives:
"Philadelphia, PA, United States",0,80,red
"New York, NY, United States",0,80,blue

I want to be able to make circles around 2 points where I click so that the concentric circles meetup. Say Where are the halfway points between Philadelphia and NY City?

Is it possible to create Square or Rectangle on the map

Hi, thanks for the feedback. You have a good point. It has now been changed so that it will not clear the textbox, but has some sample values to start.
By Free Map Tools on 22nd July 2016
Could you stop the textbox clearing on click? Whenever I want to make an adjustment I have to retype the whole lot again! Great feature though. It would be wonderful if you could combine this with the drive time radius tool.

Hi Didier, can you try the option [Save Concentric Circle] then export the XML? You need to save the data then it will appear inside the XML.
By Free Map Tools on 8th March 2016

I draw a test, it seems ok on screen.
But when I export as ".xml", the file .xml doesn't include polygon and ... Only:

Hi Lindsay, there is nothing we are aware of. Any tests at this side show it is still working.
By Free Map Tools on 1st March 2016
Hi, although I've used this alot in the past it no longer seems to be working. Is there currently a problem with this map?

Hi John, you could save your Excel spreadsheet as CSV and copy/paste the raw text in to the text box on this page. As long as the columns are in the correct order ... lat,lng,start radius, end radius, colour
