The basis of the IFPL is turning commonly available information (ZIP codes or Postal Code) into latitude and longitude coordinates.

Once it has this information it can locate furs living nearby, and display what information they have submitted. Along with a listing of furs, the IFPL also has entries for places of interest, regional mailing lists, a calendar of events, and a voting forum.
