Custom Google Maps/Spreadsheet Question
I have a Google map that pulls data in from a Google spreadsheet. Unfortunately there are over 1,200 points on it so it's not useful to look at. I need a way for the user to plug in their zip code in a field and when they hit "Submit" it'll zoom onto that area of the map and show however many points are in that area.
Can't figure out the search part, and since there are too many points throughout the country I really need a way of bringing the user to a zip code to see what's local.
I thought perhaps having a stand alone map may be the way to go and then pass the zip code as a variable in the URL but I can't seem to find a way to do this. Or maybe even a way to generate the map on the fly after a user puts in their zip?
Anyone do this or have an idea? I think it's something really simple that I'm missing.
