    any open source solutions around? I'd like to feed in a city name and have
    the X and Y coordinates
    returned.

    Thanks

    X and Y = latitude and longitude?

    If so, which format: dd-mm-ss or dd.nnnn?

    Do you already have the data or
    do you want the data and a lookup facility?

    Which cities; US only, world-wide?

    Try Google:

    Look-up Latitude and Longitude - USA
