Hello, is there a roll out plan to include population data? I would be very interested in this.
By Greg on 22nd September 2021

Marco, we do not have the data split out in order to allow the user to filter them like that. Sorry...
By Free Map Tools on 5th August 2021

Thanks for the feedback. Could it be set as an option that a user can choose?
By Marco on 4th August 2021

Hi Marco, it's a grey area. On a worldwide scale it's tricky to define cities, towns and villages and get it correct all the time.
By Free Map Tools on 31st July 2021

is it possible to include villages? In Italy there are of places classified by OpenStreetMap as villages that are not present in the output. Thanks
By Marco on 30th July 2021

Great tool! I would have to agree with Sara, that having an option to add the zip codes associated with the listed cities would be nice and the actually distance from the stated starting point. Thank you so much though for this great website! So extremely helpful! Eleonor 7.11.2021

Super cool tool thanks. Would love to filter by town population size. even if we just had a few options like 500+ 1500+ 5000+ etc. i am sitting on 500 keywords for my ads, and i really only need like 25 of these
By Power Washing Bullies - FB Gro on 15th April 2021

Even better if.... - Could specify a range or a particular distance away - ie I'm interested in places 100-150 miles away. - if the parameters could also include population size that would be good too!

Do you have an example of a mobile home trailer park named on the list?
By Free Map Tools on 16th November 2020

Would like to get list of towns/cities without showing mobile home trailer parks. Why are these counted in the list?
On 15th November 2020

jk, sorry this is not possible as this tool is to be used for any country in the world, not just those with states.
By Free Map Tools on 26th October 2020

Can you add state abbr to the output?

Map of the USA where you can specify a point and a radius to search within and return all cities found inside.

I couldn't find a way to display the list of citys in a verticle colum That would this very easy to use but I Still think this us a brilliant site thank you

A way to filter minimum population would be nice. For example, cities over 50,000 population within 300 miles of a place.
By Curtis on 20th July 2021

Results should include drive distance from the city that is center of your radius. Example I search cities and towns with 50 mi radius of Memphis, TX the resulting cities/towns should have a drive distance to Memphis, TX.
By Chad Whitehead on 25th June 2021

I now travel for work and was unfamiliar with towns,now I have a list that I will travel to and it was so easy to access! So happy!

By Bill Larkins on 6th February 2021

Would be good to show zip code of the center of the circle. It is hard to see see if you got a click right as the radius gets large.

Use a map radius tool to find new destinations

Remember the old song "500 Miles Away From Home"? Think of it as a challenge instead of a lament and you could come up with some good ideas for a road trip.

You can do it the old-fashioned way, calculating distances on a paper map using scale of miles and a ruler. But now there are free online map radius tools that show you at a glance which destinations are within a given distance.

One that's relatively simple to use is at

Go to the Web site and scroll down to the "Options" form. Type in the city you're starting from in "Place radius by location name."

Skip latitude and longitude and go to the "Radius Distance" section. Here the form automatically sets the radius distance to 1,000 kilometers, but you can reset by typing in the number of miles you're willing to drive in the "miles" box right next to the kilometer box.

Now go back up to the location name and click on "Draw Radius."

Scroll up to see the green circle on the map. Zoom in by grabbing the minus sign on the left and moving it up a couple of notches for a more detailed look at cities within your drive-to zone.

Depending on traffic and highway speed, most people can easily cover 500 miles in a day's drive, so starting with that distance could inspire some interesting choices. If you're taking a week's vacation, driving the first and last days to and from your destination is often an acceptable tradeoff to save on plane fare.

Starting with New York as a radius point on the Web site, you quickly see that trips to Montreal, Toronto, Cleveland and Virginia Beach, Va., are well within the 500-mile radius.

Destinations at the very edge of the circle may be farther than your maximum distance once you calculate actual driving routes. The radius tool measures distance as the crow flies without considering highways or terrain, so it's good to check distances against a mileage calculator on MapQuest or GoogleMaps.

Safely inside the 500-mile circle around New York, the actual distance to Toronto is 475 miles; to Cleveland, 463 miles; to Montreal, 376 miles; and to Virginia Beach, Va., 362 miles. Greenville, N.C., appears near the edge of the 500-mile circle, and GoogleMaps' mileage calculator says the driving distance is just beyond 500 miles, at 522.

Checking out a few other starting points yields some great vacation ideas within a 500-mile circle: Baltimore to Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Denver to Mount Rushmore; Cleveland to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky; Minneapolis to Kansas City; Tucson to Los Angeles; Atlanta to Orlando; Boise, Idaho, to Portland, Ore.; Helena, Mont., to Salt Lake City.

If you're willing to make the seven-to-10 hour drive, the cost savings of a 500-mile road trip versus flying is considerable. For one person, it's not that much, but a family of four is likely to spend over $1,000 flying anywhere round-trip. Air travel also involves more than the cost of plane tickets; there's transportation to and from the airport, food and other incidentals, and car rental when you land.

In contrast, with gas around $2 a gallon, driving 1,000 miles in a car that gets 25 mpg will cost you well under $100. Even counting tolls, food and a night in a motel en route if you can't make the trip in a day, it's bound to run less than plane tickets. If you're feeling ambitious, leave before dawn and you can easily get to a destination 400 miles away by lunchtime.

Or if you're willing to leave at dawn and arrive by dinner, expand your radius to 800 miles and you greatly expand your vacation options. My husband and I managed to drive the 840-mile trip from New York to Mammoth Cave in one day with two kids (and no electronic devices to entertain them), and had a cheap and unforgettable vacation visiting the national park and nearby attractions.

While using a map radius can expand your list of potential vacation spots, the appeal is partly psychological. Many people are not good at estimating distances, and knowing exactly how far away something is can make it seem more attainable.

Besides, quantifying distances is something of a national pastime. Of course there are thousands of highway mileage signs that list distances to other cities, but there are also numerous examples of whimsical or wistful mileage signs.

U.S. soldiers on bases overseas sometimes erect handmade signposts listing the mileage to their favorite places and hometowns thousands of miles away. A sign in downtown Anchorage notes the distance to Tokyo and Paris. Many small towns in Maine are named for big cities around the world, so there are famous signposts at local crossroads showing place names like China, Norway, Mexico and Paris just a few miles down the road.

And when you get to the top of Mount Katahdin in Maine at the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, you're confronted with a sign that tells you Springer Mountain, Ga., at the southern end of the trail, is a mere 2,000 miles away.

How To Find The Center and Radius of a Circle

How do I find cities within a certain radius?

  1. Select a radius to search within 1km, 5km, 10km, 20km or 50km.
  2. Select a centre point by either. Type an address and click / tap Search.
  3. Once the search is complete, you can see the list of towns and cities below the map. You can also tap on a marker of a result to find more details.

Click to see full answer.

Subsequently, one may also ask, can you do a radius on Google Maps?

[Zoom and Pan to find the required area on the map then click on the map to draw a circle] OR [Type a location into the text box and click Draw Radius] OR [Input the latitude and longitude of the location in decimal format].

Also Know, how do I find zip codes within a radius? Click on the map or type in an address or ZIP code on the centre of your search. After a delay, the results will appear inside the radius. If you hover over a marker, you will see its ZIP code. You can also find a comma separated list of the ZIP codes in the large text box in the CSV Output section.

Herein, how do you see how far a place is from another?

Measure distance between points

  1. On your computer, open Google Maps.
  2. Right-click on your starting point.
  3. Choose Measure distance.
  4. Click anywhere on the map to create a path to measure.
  5. Optional: Drag a point or path to move it, or click a point to remove it.
  6. At the bottom, you'll see the total distance in miles (mi) and kilometers (km).

How do you make a radius map?

A radius map simply draws a circle with a certain radius around a central point. You can draw a radius map very easily, especially with a free online tool that does the work for you. Go to and select “Radius Around Point” from the menu on the left side of the screen. You will see a map of the world.


A radius cities within find

Sometimes you want to find out what’s within a certain number of miles of a specific location. Maybe you want to know what area a cell tower covers or what would happen if a nuclear bomb got dropped on your in-laws’ house.

To find this information, we’re going to use FreeMapTools’ Radius Around Point tool.

Finding the Radius Around a Specific Map Point

Head to FreeMapTools’ Radius Around Point tool to get started. For this example, I’m going to find out the maximum area the cell tower on top of the hill near my house can cover.

In theory, a cell tower has a range of over 40 miles, but in practice, the maximum distance you’ll be able to get cell service from is about 22 miles—and that’s under ideal conditions. Under “Options,” I’m going to set the “Radius Distance” to 22 miles. You should enter whatever value you want to test; the tool will work with everything from a few feet to a significant fraction of the earth’s circumference.

Next, you need to set the location of the circle’s center. You have four options for doing this: clicking on the map, entering a location name, inputting coordinates, or drawing your own location.

Each one works exactly how they sound. I’m going to go with the simplest option and just click roughly where the cell tower is on the map, although you can dial in an address or input latitude and longitude values if you’d like.

And just like that, the tool draws a circle for you. You can see that the cell tower I selected covers the entirety of Dublin City, which makes it all the more annoying that I have bad cell reception in my house.

With the Radius Around a Point tool, you aren’t just limited to one circle. You can add as many as you need. This means you can look at areas where different circles overlap. I’m going to add another circle in the centre of the Irish Sea to see what would happen if there was a hypothetical cell tower out there.

Well apparently, not much. The ferry to Wales might get cell service for a bit longer, but that’s about the height of it. To remove a circle you’ve added, right click the blue location marker in the circle’s center. I’m going to do that now.

Changing the Appearance of the Circles

You also can change the appearance of the circles you draw with the Radius Around Point Tool. This is useful if you’re tracking the areas covered by different classes of things.

To change the appearance of the circles you draw, click the “Colours and Line Thickness” section, and then select the values you want for line thickness, line color, and fill color. You can’t change the appearance of a circle you’ve already drawn, so make sure to set these values before you add the circle.

Here are some different circles I’ve added to the map.

Adding Labels to the Circles

If you want to add a label to any circle, select “Map Options” and in the dialog box, type the label you want to add.

Then, just click the circle to which you want to attach the label.

Sharing the Map

If you want to share a map you’ve created, scroll down to the “Output” section. You’ll see two options: “URL to Last Radius” and “URL to All Radius.”

The “URL to Last Radius” link takes people to a map that shows only the most recent circle you’ve drawn. The “URL to All Radius” link takes people to a map with all the circles you’ve drawn. Here’s the link to my map.

There are plenty of reasons you might want to find everything that’s within a certain radius of a point, like perhaps to see what cities you can drive to in two hours when you’re travelling or work out where you could walk to in a day. With the Radius Around a Point Tool you can do it.
