Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am trying to figure out how to add a search functionality to my openlayers map. I want the user to type in an address and the map to zoom into the location. I am looking at different geocoders and can't figure out a simple solution to this. Nominatim seems liek a possible solution. But I am trying to find something that I can develop on the front end. I have OSM data for my background and would prefer to use this. Any tip or ideas to point me in the right direction would be appreciated!

Thanks

Here's an example using google.

Just supply your own google key for your environment to test.
