Description


This PHP web application interfaces geographic locations (retail outlets) to the Google Maps API. The program consists of two sections, the public mapping interface and an administration backend. Within the administration control panel, a program administrator can upload, inspect, and manage location data as well as configure display aspects of the public interface.

Unique to the administrative section is a set of functions that assign latitude and longitude coordinates to records in the database. The Google Maps API provides a set of functions to obtain geographic coordinate information from street addresses. To implement this, a set of JavaScript HttpRequest functions were used access the Google geo-coding API. The obtained latitude and longitude coordinates were then saved to a MySQL database.

Retail locations are retrieved from the database when website visitors enter a point of origin (city, postal code or map click) and a search radius.

Server side code for this program was developed using the CodeIgniter MVC framework.
