    Representative Locator


    I'm not sure whewre to begin, or where to ask this, so I'm going to start here. If there is another project or product out there that would be good to harness, please feel free to point me there - I just don't know where to begin.

    I need to create an interactive map that allows visitors to find their location on a map and find the correct contact for their area.

    The regions on the map don't necessarily match the states - some states have multiple reps, and other reps cover multiple states.

    I was thinking about just doing a look up based on zip code, and keeping a table that maps each zip code to a representative. I don't know how to take that same concept to a map.

    Any direction would be appreciated.

    Google Maps API is the best place I can think of for mapping projects
