I've been working on a Google Map and have hit a problem. Creating the map and all the markers has gone really well. The hard part was finding the time to get all the latitude and longitude values. However, now I've created the map and wanted to do something a bit extra. I want to have text below the map with links to the markers on the map.
If you go to maps.google.com, and do a search for something like hotels, you get a nice google map and a list of all the hotels as a text frame. When you click on one of the text links, the map is readjusted and pinpoints the associated marker. I want to do something similar, but it's proving rather frustrating as all the howtos about the Google Map API (official and unofficial) don't seem to reference this linking. Or if they do they use a word or phrase that isn't obviously about text links external to the map.
Anyone have any references to tutorials or howtos about this?
