Default Implementing GPS

Web Application (VB.NET,ASP.NET)

i am working in an health care product for an
insurance company in USA.

There is an appointment form.aspx where the patient can
fix the appointment with a particular doctor
with a particular location.
i am displaying PatientName, AppointmentDateTime,
Doctor,LocationOfAppintment.

Now what my client wants to display the "Distance".
i.e., how far the patient's residence is from the
location of appointment.

i think i need to implement Global Positioning System(GPS)

Please get me some ideas to implement this

You should be able to use Microsoft's MapPoint webservice for this. I haven't tried it myself, but it sounds like something you could use it for although you will have to check out their site for specifics. Also, I believe there is a licensing fee...

Now i am trying in this way.
am passing the source address and destination address
in query string to mapquest.com as this website is
providing the distance in miles if we provide the address.
If i succeed i will explain how i did.
