I'm developing a Google maps based site using the API v3. My Google Maps experience in rather short and I have hit a problem. I have a database which is populated with several thousand markers. When the user enters a direction request, I wish to display only markers which are within ‘x' amount of miles from the route.
2. The code must be designed for Google API v3.
The site is currently running on a VPS, however, the final product will be deployed to a dedicated server as I realise this may be somewhat of a processor hungry task.
The job will be only awarded to anyone who can provide an outline as to how they would complete this task.
(Please note that the site is not yet in development as I'm attempting to climb this hurdle before I continue. There is no site to display examples to you. The markers will be added to the database in a format that suits your needs.)
Looking forward to hearing from you,
