I have a website with a bunch of selection checkboxes to filter data. When I select one or some of those boxes, I would like to see the corresponding area in an embedded map be selected.
For example, I have a list of all the states. I select the box next to the states I am interested in, and the appropriate polygons on the map are highlighted. (Zooming to them would be a bonus, but not absolutely necessary.)
I am nearly positive this can be done, either with tools already available or with some developer work. I just don't know the right word or phrase to search in order to find the information.
