Good web programmer required to develop map system for website

P: n/a
Looking for experienced and resourceful web developer / programmer for
following project:
Or if anyone knows of a company that specialises in this sort of thing would
be grateful if you could let me know!

Need creation/production of an accurate scalable map of UK with a programmed
invisible National Grid layer allowing us to accurately position simple
icons on the map automatically using national grid references from database.

Segments of this map will be served up to pages for our site visitors to
view and to click on the icons.

E.g: When a town (e.g town1) page is accessed on our site by a visitor, a
10mile sq segment of the map is sent to the page. Town1 grid reference/icon
being the center of the map. Also on this map would be other town icons or
whatever we have in database which has a grid reference within the 10mile
sq.

The project is new and i am still in the throws of finding out more details.
I have been looking at the ordinance survey website and others, trying to
find materials for the job. Any help guidance would be appreciated.

Ideally we need a large scalable map of the uk with layers (e.g major roads,
rivers, etc) that we can use and customise.
I dont know how the National Grid will be done which will make the map work.
Any ideas please let me know.
The existing site is mainly php/myql. and we enter new data into it via an
admin page.

Email me your interest and credentials, plus any example url's.

Sincerely,
James

Map project will be really hectic. BTW, I'm curious, why you want to
do this for the whole UK?

Some good resources on this:
