Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)

Project Description:
I'm developing a website that gives information about educational institutes in the UK, and need to have Google map-based component for Joomla 1.5.x that creates maps and has the ability to:

- add many markers in one map from the backend,
- support address/postcode/zip search from the backend, to enable me identify the location of the institutions.
- use custom icons for markers
- set different Icons for different zoom Levels (Clicking one of the cluster marker zooms into a level where you see more cluster markers, or actual markers)
- show the title, description and an image of the institute in the info text balloon. The title should be in deferent color. In addition, there should be a “More details” icon.
- The more details icon should be linked with an article.
- mousewheel zoom on a map
- the end-user should have the ability to filter the shown universities on map based on several criteria: the region, city, and the available courses.
- show or disable any feature in every created mp.
- Place map in a module and article.
- Control the size of the map and show/control map type buttons (Normal, Satellite, Hybrid)
- The component must be easy to use by an admin with no programming knowledge.

The project is like the map here http://www.lettingweb.com/search/results/?location_main_region=60&map_display=map

Please take time navigating the map in the above link and make sure you understand the way it works.

Bidders should be familiar with Google Maps API and it would be better if providing examples of their works related to Google Maps API.

The component can be built based on an existing Joomla component or script.

Skills required:
Anything Goes, CSS, Javascript, Joomla, PHP, System Admin
