Can you maybe explain to us what you're trying to accomplish? We should definitely be able to help you, but I'm a bit confused as to what you're doing.

Hi

I am building a website and store some information about
people who registers , they fill in name and zip code.
I put this information in a database, online.

I want to enrich my database with the geographical information
with that zip code, from another website.

There is a website where you can put in a zip code and get
the longlitude adress (like google maps)

I want to use the next site for that information
http://www.gpscoordinaten.nl/bepaal-gps-coordinaten.php

For input i want to use field "invoer" = INPUT
For output i want to use field "resultaat" = OUTPUT

With that information i am able to calculate the distance between
your home (zip) adress and my home (zip) adres with a php program.

I'll hope i am clear enough to define my issue,

If you want some more information please don't hesistate to ask for
more information,

Thanks a lot

So "Ga naar" means "submit"? Looks like a form to me, so it uses a query string. If you can find out what the form of the string should be and how it is used, you may be able to do that. The query string is not accessible AFAICT tho, so you may have to write and ask them what it is -- they may be happy to provide details like that.

It would depend on what service you're using, but you may be able to get your hands on an API for the service. I'd recommend going that route - if the suppliers supply an API, it's typically because they prefer you use it.
