The aim is to create a Flash application which can take a user input of a town/city name or post code, check the coordinates of that location from a database, and show the location as a pin on a custom drawn, simple graphic map of the UK. Kind of like a very simple alternative to Google Maps, that can be used offline on a desktop computer, and simply represents where that town / postcode is located. I would like this to function as a self contained desktop / mobile app, not hosted on a web server.
I have a database in .csv format of all of the towns/cities/post codes in the UK with data such as their latitude/longitude, UK grid reference, and northings and eastings.
I'm looking for a working example to be created, which I can then adapt and expand upon myself. I'm quite familiar with using Flash, but the process of retrieving data and plotting it as a coordinate is a little more difficult for me. The original coordinates will likely have to be converted to match the scale of the map also. It's the basic scripting of this feature that I'm looking for, not a polished app. Because I will hopefully be expanding on the prototype myself, I would like the script to be well commented and documented so that I can understand the process you used.
I have attached an image of how the desired application would look, with simple user input fields and the map display.
Thanks for looking :-)
