Zoomable State Map Jan. 18th, 2009 @ 11:11 pm
Hello all -- I am a Java developer getting into Web 2.0 programming. I'm trying to estimate a client's request, and I am looking for a widget, or pointers to a toolset, or suggestions/ideas for a specific requirement:

They want to be able to see a national map (for example, the USA). Hovering over images of states shows information about the "market" that state is a part of (possibly one or more states). Clicking zooms in on a closeup of the map that encompases that market. Then the zoomed-in map behaves the way with the "districts" in that market, allowing them to see information and zoom even further into that market segment.

Seen anything like this? Any ideas, suggestions, or pointers to websites you have would be very appreciated!

Finally. We are done with the NFL Preview site we've been working on for SIX months. Built with Adobe Flex, the site uses some of the most cutting edge technology out there. Check out the About section for more info about the author, and let me know if you have any questions!

» Welcome to the Flex Development Group

Right now, because Flex is SO new (still in Beta!) there isn't much interest around LJ yet. I was hoping to change this by providing a community for anyone interested in developing Rich Internet Applications with Flex to talk about this great program!

There are important links on the left (including the one where you can download the program!) and I will be posting a resources post.
