Store locator, distance filter, and more fixes

We are pleased to announced more great improvements to easymapmaker.com.  Data can now be filtered based on location and distance with up to 999 km or miles from any location.  This allows for any map to be used a store locator (the search box can also be used to find the nearest location).  This is only available on our advanced maps.  To enable this feature, be sure to check the directions check box.  When the map renders, there is a more options image in the top left corner that will allow a left panel to be displayed.  When results are displayed below the page, the distance can be displayed next to the listings and results are sorted in order by distanced.   Another change was made to our filters.  The dynamic feature can be turned off so the list of available items to filter on remains static.  This was how easymapmaker.com was initially designed, but we wanted to also allow excel like filters.

In addition, we made some fixes to issues with Internet Explorer.   There are likely other issues, but we tried to get the low hanging fruit.  Other bug fixes include adding more locations to the edit page.

We have plenty of more great features in the pipeline and plan to offer some tutorials and more information on how to use our service, as well as to make it even easier.  We know this will be a challenge.
