Search towns or suburbs

P: 1
Hello fellow programmers,

I am new to this site and was looking around for some good advice or if i am lucky some help.

I am starting off a basic local business search project just for some practice.

I need some tutorial or some example code. I don't want to waste too much time for others so ill make this quick.

http://au.local.yahoo.com/ This link shows 2 search bars. Both do not need to be filled to search for a business. I would like to know how to do this. How to label each business with a postcode so the search result can find it. Also would like to know how the include surrounding suburbs work as well and how to label a business to show up with that option ticked as well.

I hope this is clear. If any fingers can be pointed to a very clear source that would be great. I understand some coding but not advanced enough to write it from scratch.

Thanks in advanced

Peace >.<

Try this link it's a good learning site with everything you need: www.w3schools.com

Since you are creating a web project:
You start by designing everything in html
Then you use server side programming languages to make those designs interactive... (Select from the web development languages available like php and asp)

To search the surrounding you need to have a latitude and longitude database containing the lat/long for all the cities. First find the lat/lon of the trageted city/location and then using a formula (you can find this on Google) get the cities in a specific radius.
