Need a search system that is better when viewing the map.

For example...
A person chooses Planets, as usual, but it shows a search window and you choose the types of planet or planets, and the number in the system, that you are searching for. Currently a person can only choose a type of planet , but not the number and/or other planets with amount.

In other words...
-Planets (this option is already in the game, but only show a general choice, i.e. temperate, etc.)
-Types of planets (more than one a person can choose, i.e. barren, temperate, oceanic)
-Number of Planets (number of each of the specified planets in a system)

So a person might want, 2 barren+2 lava, in a system. Therefore he/she will choose "Planets"-> "Type of Planets"(screen will appear) and check off the "Barren" and "Lava"-> input "2 Barren" + " 2 Lava"-> press the "Search" button in that screen.

The window/screen would look something like this:

Barren: (x) Number:(2)
Lava: (x) Number(2)
Temperate:() Number()
Oceanic:() Number()
Null Sec(X)
High Sec()
Low sec()
(Search) <-This is the search button to find all systems that meet the specified.

I know you just want to find the system with your optimal Planetary Interaction setup, but I think you should have to go looking for systems like that, even if it's clicking Show Info and looking at orbital bodies.

Updated...

I found the information on the website to find what I want, but it is not in game, I had to manually look at the information and search for each system in the map screen Search. So I still request this feature to the company, and here is all the information you have to put for" Lava Planets": http://eveplanets.com/eve/planet/set?planets_set=Lava

Note: you have to choose the other planet types on the website to see where they are located just like the example above with "Lava Planet" locations.

Revised suggestion to the company...
Please use the information you already have on these website pages and incorporate in Map Screen Search window in the Game. i.e.

Adjacent Solar systems: () <- this is the number a person places to specify the number of Jump gates/connected systems.
Barren: (x) Number:(2)
Lava: (x) Number(2)
Temperate:() Number()
Oceanic:() Number()
Null Sec(X)
High Sec()
Low sec()
