I've added a utility to my website that plots a 3km honey bee forage
zone around an apiary site.

Interesting to see what your honey bees are potentially using for
foraging.

It's free, based on google maps; you are more than welcome to add your
apiary sites to try it out.

Does the flower make the honeybee or the honeybee the flower?

Have you seen the NASA honey bee forage map?

What a great idea.

I used a ADC street map in plotting my yards out when setting a breeding program. The area maps are large enough with detail that 5-1/4 inch made a 2 mile circle. It not only allowed me to concentrate on finding farms within a certain distance, but kept the distance in an area good for drone yards and genetic saturation.
