Interactive Map - adding functionality
I'm hoping to create an interactive map with Adobe Flash (similar to the map on http://www.findaconferencevenue.com/ where you hover over each county and it changes colour). I know how to do this as there are many videos on youtube showing you how to do it. However, i want to enable this map to navigate someone through our website. At the moment i have a drop-down menu with all of the 32 counties. The user selects "Dublin" and presses submit. All of the Dublin data from a MySQL database is being called onto a new page via php programming. However, instead of the drop-down menu, i want to have an interactive flash map. Can anyone please advise me on how to add such functionality to an flash map.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Don't know how right off but you might check some of the Flash/PHP tuts over at:
We've developed a couple products that sounds very similar to what you are going for. Check out our website at www.cartametrix.com, and drop us a line if you'd like some assistance.
There are few mapping software which provides US county maps, not sure if that's what you need. You can check this article at:
And also an US map with drill-down function at:
One note -- Flash cannot read directly from MySQL database. You would need to export the data from MYSQL into XML file first, for the flash map to read the data.
