I have a MySQL database full of data about students (name, age, school, university, city, etc). What I want to do is to transform the data I got to markers on the map. To be more specific, I will for example calculate the number of students who study at the university X and come from town Y. The result of this request (a number) will be set on the map as a marker. I've been looking for such an example but couldn't find one in the OpenLayers examples. Besides, POI examples have text files as data sources.
To sum up, I want to know how to implement the transformation of the results of my request into markers (or graphics) on the map.
I wish I could resolve this because I'm stuck onthis for more than three weeks :/
Thank you so much !
