  • May be, Please tell me. Can I use GeoEXT for map search feature and attribute display? I cant see such example on geoExt website. – Ashutosh Agrawal Dec 30 '13 at 9:08

    I recommend that you edit your Question to focus on that precise question i.e. How to use GeoExt for map search feature and attribute display? – PolyGeo Dec 30 '13 at 9:09
  • Please explain what you mean by 'search function' What exactly do you want to search? What source data do you have? These kinds of details will help in getting an answer. – Devdatta Tengshe Dec 30 '13 at 11:23
  • @DevdattaTengshe Sir, I am using geoserver, and published data. Now I need a client GUI to display maps and search function, which can search the records and display results in a table and in between search records needs to be highlighted on map. – Ashutosh Agrawal Dec 30 '13 at 11:39
  • @AshutoshAgrawal It's still not clear what you mean by search. Do you need Auto Complete? Or a dropdown? Or do you need to search through an table which is being displayed? Or do you need to search for a particular keyword in all fields of all layers? The answer will be different for each case. – Devdatta Tengshe Dec 30 '13 at 15:46

Sure you can, check here for an example using GeoExt, Geoserver and OpenLayers.

It seems that Ian's link is broken, here you can do more or less the same but with GeoDjango: http://invisibleroads.com/tutorials/geodjango-googlemaps-build.html#id10
