I am working on creating a website that will contain a query, that will search a database, preferably MySQL, display the results on the website, and give the user the option to map the results on a Google Maps (hybrid) inset. This project will require a very good understanding of Google code KML. This project does not need to be perfect, merely a prototype. The site should be easy to navigate, have a fully functioning search, and be able to display the events (natural disasters in this case, will be displayed with coordinate data).
Overall, the project will need a simple website created, a search query with 4 searchable features from drop down boxes (Month, Year, Type of Disaster and State), a feature such as a checkbox that allows the user to select results, and when those results are selected, viewed in a Google Map inset. On the Google Map inset, the displayed disaster icon can be clicked on, and minor attribute data will appear to the user as well.
