I am currently starting on a new website and need some Google Maps integration.
I want someone to be able to enter their postcode and the map will center on that postcode at a certain zoom level.
Then the person can click on one of several options( ie. select plumber or electrician or mechanic )and then display markers on the map of their local/nearest companies. The company data will be pulled from an Mysql database. When a person clicks on the marker, it will show the name, postcode and telehone number ( pulled from the database ) in the infowindow.
Current data in the database in based on UK postcodes ( I know that Google now has it's own geo-converter to convert UK postcodes to Lon,Lat co-ordinates so shouldn't be a problem).
This should be a relatively easy task for an experienced Google Maps professional.
