I've checked out some of the previous posts on this topic in
the Google version of the forums. But, I don't think they address
my specific questions. So, I appreciate any additional insight you
I want to create a map that reads in marker coordinates from
an XML file. I've got the XML import covered and I believe I can
address almost every function of the map. But, I'm not sure how to
handle plotting the markers (locations where the user will click to
get detailed info) on the map. A couple of questions:
1. Do I plot manually, or is there some sort of mapping
software/component/database out there that I can purchase a
subscription too, that will help with plotting? If something
exists, will it work through a firewall?
2. Either way, how do I retain plot markers if I allow the
user to zoom in on the map?
3. If nothing exists to help plot map markers, how do you go
about (in laymens terms 1st please - step-by-step - no code just
yet) plotting dynamically - manually? You know - building your own
dynamic marker plotting?
Thanks for any help. I'm just getting started with this so am
looking for high-level info right now. I don't need to dive into
the code just yet.
