i have my map running over geoserver and openlayers. but i want to add a search box to find places in it. Well not specifically places but directions.
The map reads the layers directly over geoserver ( without postgis) but i'm a bit lost with the search thing.
How can i implement this feature and what tools are appropriated for it?
Now i will explain how the searching process must be:
1.- I have layers with streets, blocks and house numbers.
2.- the user will search by street name or house direction (house number and street name) and the map will show a list of concordances, if the user select one result on the list it will be zoomed to the destination. Very similar to an Arcgis search tools.
Any help will be appreciated.
