We need a modification made of the Google Maps Local api to use on our website. We need the completed code to be commented extensively so we can modify and expand it to meet our changing needs.
The primay elements of the project are to relocate the actual search box for the map and create hyperlinks to feed to the map itself. We will automatically populate the map with the address for the centerpoint, but need you to help us create the links that will feed commands to the Google Map to display nearby places (schools, churches, restaurants, etc.). We need help to be able to add additional links after the project is completed. We would like you to post screenshots of your proposed solutions, if you'd prefer not to post actual code.
We're also open to your suggestions on further modifications. We realize the api can display text results for the search, and we would be open to displaying the first 3 or 4 returns below the actual map itself. But we have limited space available for display, as this map will be displayed in an iframe.
The completed project must have the following instructions so we can complete the modifications:
"This code will display the search box:"
"This code will apply the search term to the nearby places search:"
"This code determines the size of the static map and results map:"
