Hello,

I have a question which I can only solve with a code I guess, so I need your help.

Background is, that in a context of population survey, people where asked to tell their zipcode, later one they set a point on googlemaps which result their adress coordinates and so after geocoding their point of adress (including street, zip code, ...). Unfortunetly the two zip codes (first variable and that from the geocoding) do not coincide in 25% of the data. Now I want to calculate the distance between the geocode point (xy) and the zip code border of the zip code the particular person named at the beginning of the survey.

As I have a huge amout of data my question is now how I can calculate the distance between the geocode point and the zip code border which the person told.

So ich have the attribute table + shapefile with the xy coordinates and one with the zip codes.

I thank you for any advice!!
