Is there a way to make the PWS distance value in geolookup more precise?

I'm inputting latitude/longitude and the PWS distances from that point are returned as integers, and often they are values like 0km.

I see what you mean now, and that an integer would be more helpful because so many stations show up within less than a mile.  I don't think we will be updating this particular data point but its something to think about for the future.

Ok thank you. Just to clarify, the distance is already in integer format. An integer is just a number without a decimal point. I was requesting that the distance be shown as another data type, one that is able to contain decimals, so for example, instead of 0km, it would be 0.8764km.
