A C# Program to Analyze Distance Traveled by Basketball Team

You are performing some analysis on a basketball league, and would like to know the relationship between how far a team has to travel from home and how often it wins.

You have the following two files, which are dos-pipe (|) delimited containing data with row headers:
Team File: Fields are TeamID, TeamName, TeamArenaAddress
Win File: Fields are TeamID, Year, Wins

Assume that in a given year, every team plays every other team twice, once at its own arena, and once at the other team's arena.

<<Problem>> Create a dataset that with the following fields: TeamName, TotalDistanceTraveled. The field TotalDistanceTraveled should measure the distance the given team travels in a single year, in kilometers. This dataset should be ordered from the team which travels the most to the team which travels the least. Geocoding and distance calculations should be performed via code, and not done manually.
