Hi all.

I have a php page where I enter the following information, it gets saved in the vendorAddress table on the webserver:

Builder, Address, City, State, Zip Code
Community, Address, City, State, Zip Code

Now I want to be able to display a Google Map with all of the information in the vendorAddress table with markers on the map for each.

I do not know the latitude and longitude, just the address.

How can I do this?

Thank you in advance.

Click here on "Javascript + HTML" : https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/geocoding-simple

The best is to locate the vendor lat and long because reverse geocoding may give you wrong results

Google can geocode addresses, if you have the appropriate application permissions.  You do not need to have the lat/lon data.  If you do not have these permissions you can buy them.  Here is some background information that may be helpful.
