    Trying to geocode and add markers from array of addresses

    Hey there you guys, you are all developing quite above my level but I gots me one of them NOOB type questions

    I have an app that is fetching an array of addresses like (street, city, state).
    Unfortunately I don't have the lat,long for these and I want to plot these all on the same map.

    All of the examples I have found on the net (over the last 4 hours of research) get me close, but they all involve, events like keypress and submitting the address through a form, then it displays on the map.

    Reading the code, there is a lot of extraneous lines used to convert the click events and stuff and I just wanted to know a simple way to iterate through this array of addresses and plot them.

    Anyone care to offer some ideas?

    Thanks code poets,

    MG

    What technology and language are you using for development ? Wiki would have at least Qt Maps examples, which also are including geocoding examples..

    Re: Trying to geocode and add markers from array of addresses

    Well, I have stripped down the developer's playgrond example and have a result.
    It's a hack but it's a start.

    Before I cycle in an array of addresses, I think I need to add to this code to make it less sloppy (of a request).
    Eventually, i want to send anywhere from 1-30 addresses for geocode lookup, I hope I can do that in a JSON request.

    Also looking to center the map on the first resturned geocoded value.
    Here's the code if you want to take a look:

    var map = new ovi.mapsapi.map.Display(mapContainer, {
    center: [53, 13],
    zoomLevel: 3,
    components: [new ovi.mapsapi.map.component.Behavior()]
    });

    var searchManager = new ovi.mapsapi.search.Manager();
    searchManager.addObserver("state", function(observedManager, key, value) {
    if(value == "finished") {
    if (observedManager.locations.length > 0) {
    rs = (new ovi.mapsapi.search.component.SearchResultSet(observedManager.locations)).container;
    //push markers to map
    map.objects.add(rs);
    map.zoomTo(rs.getBoundingBox(), false);
    }
    } else if(value == "failed") {
    alert("The request failed.");
    }
    });

    searchManager.geocode("12825 W Sunset Hwy Airway Heights, WA 99001");
