Modifying a google map query string - El Forum - 07-13-2012

When a user submits this form, I want to take "Orlando,+fl" in the query string and replace it with their city and state fields

So it would be...
maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=from:+city,+state+to:+Celina,+OH+45822&ie=UTF-8

Code:
<form action='https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=from:+Orlando,+fl+to:+Celina,+OH+45822&ie=UTF-8' method='get' accept-charset='utf-8'>
      <input type='text' name='city' value='City' />
      <input type='text' name='state' value='State' />
      <input type='submit' value='Get Directions'>
</form>

How can I go about doing this in code igniter? Or is it easier in jQuery?

But I want this to open in a new window. Not in my google map api thats on my page currently.

Opening in a new page gives the user more room to see everything and edit location

Then, yeah, use jQuery/javascript to grab the request and replace 'Orlando' and 'fl' with the values of the city and state fields and send.
