 From a Flash standpoint, this wouldn't be too hard. The hard part is 
getting the data in usable format, like longitude and latitude 
coordinates. Does anyone know of a way to find the lat&lon of any 
location in the world given a valid postal address? A cgi, or better 
yet, an online service would be ideal.

Once that is known, it shouldn't be too hard to pass that info to flash.
