Hey Im making an interactive map. I am also very new to this stuff
I am using South America. 12 countries. I have used html image maps to make the different countries links. So when I click on where Argentina is it takes me to the relevant page.
There are 2 more things I am after with this map.
1) I would like to make it so that when you move your mouse over a paticular country it changes in someway. Whether that be by lighting up or down or the border lighting up or the area changing colour.
how would I incorporate that into the map? Would I incorporate it into the html map code?
EDIT: I can make the whole map do this hover transparent thing but not the sections
2) I would also like small popup boxes to appear with the countries name in them. So when you put your mouse over Argentina a small box or label appears saying "Argentina". When your mouse is not over argentina the label is hidden. The label can be on the map, as a label, underneath the map. It doesnt matter too much.
if you need help coding the image changing then give me the thirteen images,
I hugely appreciate that you would do something so kind for me however I believe I need to do this myself. I am trying my best to learn as much as possible and in my opinion the best way to learn is by doing it. It might take me ages to do and Ill probably make a lot of mistakes but I will learn along the way.
I just wanted to know if it was possible to do and a general idea of what I have to do. You have given me a little bit of direction so I will try myself.
If you have the image in JPG / PNG format, then you can use iMapBuilder to convert it into an interactive flash map. This custom mapping software has a windows version (which you can download for using on your own PC) as well as an online version which runs in browser.
The map can then be embed to your own website, or share via email.
