I have looked at this thread: add location search to openlayers map But it is not the result that I am trying to achieve.
Probably best if i show you: http://www.potholestudios.com/Content/pid=46.html
I have made this Interactive Game Map using Open Layers. What i would like to do is add a search Box, so when say someone types into a Search Box "Deep Space 9" the map would fly to coordinates (-33.87, -8.58) Deep Space 9 in the Beta Ursae sector block.
Now, I'm guessing I'd have to list the X,Y coordinates of every system in a list with Names. So that when a Name is Entered in a Search Box it moves the map to the listed coordinates.
But i have no idea even where to start with this. any help would be appreciated.
