Scan Text for Postcodes and Plot Them on a Map

I’ve often been frustrated when sites list addresses (such as store locations) without providing a map to help you visually see the closest one to you, or the best one to stop by on your way somewhere.

So I dreamed up a tool to parse a web page for postcodes and plot them, this afternoon my brother asked me for one so I finally got around to making one.

It is here: http://www.pata.cat/maps/postcode-picker

Comments, ideas and feedback are welcome. The source is also yours on request – it’s a part of a bigger Zend Framework project and a little finickety to share easily.
