Huh?

You don't even need a computer for that. You get a map of your area,  
and either have each vendor stick a pin in it, or have the manager  
look up each address and do the pin-sticking.

Simon, are you really dealing with market managers who have no idea  
where their vendors come from? And, if so, how are they going to enter  
the information into your site?

If you mean something more complicated and interactive, why do you  
describe it as "just seeing a map of where all their vendors come from"?
