Hi i’m using the Google Store Locator tut to work on somthing I’d like to create. After downloading all the source code everything is fine yet when I try to change the data (medicare.csv) everything goes blank. I understand using excel to to changes on the csv file is a problem.
All this leads me to think I’d be better off using the dynamic example where I can call the data from a mysql DB and upload from a CSV file no matter what IDE it came from?
Has anyone used this and if so are there any good examples I can look at - i’m getting frustrated!
The Xcoord and Ycoord are the longitude and latitude… the order in the CSV is the reverse of the order that you get them from google maps. In fact that could be why your data points are not showing on the map, if they’re in the wrong order.
Okay i’ve realised that using excel to modify the csv file is not good. It removes the " marks and therefore changes the file structure. Thanks fretburner as well on the co-ords realised after geocoding my data.
Anyone now of a good unbotrusive csv editor - dont want to use notepad++ and cant use excel… Google spreadsheets?
