One quick way would be to generate the <select></select> content in your 
index.phtml (initialization file) and output it to your template through 
the use of [$|$].

So, in your index.phtml you would do something like:

$hLink = mysql_connect('mysql_host', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password');

$sql = 'SELECT * FROM my_table';
$result = mysql_query($sql);
while ( ($aRow = mysql_fetch_assoc( $result )) !== false )
             //write out your <option></option> here
             // something like:
             // $szOptions .= '<option 
             // follow this format:
             // <option 
value="-69.053,44.567;-63.778,48.065|epsg:4326">New Brunswick</option>

// now set your preprocess include for the template
// make sure to set it after you've initialized
$oApp->setVar( 'MYOPTIONS', $szOptions );

In your template you could do something like:

<select onchange="changeQuickZoom(this)" 

You would also have to include a QuickZoom widget in your template with 
it's visibility set to false.  You need to include this widget so that 
the appropriate javascript and markup is included to make it all work. 
I think NAV_QUICKZOOM and SEL_QUICKZOOM are required for parseURL and 
changeQuickZoom(obj) is definitely needed.

disclaimer: untested code.  Write back if you run into issues.
