hello, i am new to this site, amazing.

was trying to find out what the fastest way is to use a URL to enter

http://ws.geonames.org/findNearbyPostalCodes?postalcode=8027&country=CH&radius=10

and it will give me also an Elevation value if available.

my goal is to use

input field: Country Name, Postal Code (world wide, or at least Europe)
and get result of ideally:

City, State/Province, Long, Lat, Elevation, GMT, DST

Hi

Elevation is not yet included in the postal code services. Would the timezone be sufficient? I am not sure what you expect from GMT and DST. Is GMT the offset to GMT? And what is DST? Do you expect an algorithm how to determine the DST for a place?
