I am trying display Coordinate vs Zip distance. User inputs zip they get a list of things close. Trying to work with Openlayers and expand on this post. Need a simple Google Maps solution; lost in the labyrinth of modules


This tutorial helped me when i set my first proximity search.

It goes through eveything you need, and once done, is easily configurable.

  • Hi Collins :-). Can I do that Coordinates vs Zip Code with this? Stored node has coordinates, exposed filter has Zip input. Thanks!

  • Yep, the first few values of a zip code or post code are stored in the database alongside their relevant lat and long values, so the users Inputted postcode can be searched by lthe nodes lat long.

  • Well, the tutorial is something I had already done in Drupal 6, so I think I need to tweak some more. I am looking for exposed text field (no operator for math) to enter zip code. My admin has coordinates so I don't want a zip along side the coordinate in the node. The search would actually take zip input from anonymous user, calculate it's coordinate and compare it to node coordinate then return a summary list of closest to zip first. Thanks for the help.
