I'm building a classifieds website for my client and I'm confused as to what's the best way to show cities to the users of the website.
Do people find a city map with selectable areas more valuable, easy and worthwile:
than a autocomplete cities input?
or the way around? if possible can you explain why?
If they already know the address what's the added value in showing the map as well after they type it? If they don't how would showing a map location where you can further narrow down help searching for an apartment or item?
Usually when you browse a classifieds website like craigslist you search it in your city (suppose it's NY) or don't bother searching for it 5 km from Newark, isn't it?
