Can someone suggest some ideas/techniques for implementing the following on a
I have a single graphic of several counties displayed on a web page....I would
like to read a set of data containing x.y coordinates and plot a dot on the
county graphic dynamically, realizing that the coordinates in the data set
would need to be translated to the coordinate set of the graphic. I would
also like to make the dot that just got plotted, a hot spot on the graphic so
when a user hover's over it or clicks on it, I can pop up a small detail
window with additional information. The additional information and x,y
information will be contained in a flat file which will be updated
periodically (say every x minutes).
I am looking for two types of answers:
First - Just a general method of accomplishing this
(reply to list)
Second - Hey I know just how to do that, and the cost to implement is $$
(reply directly to me)
Any feedback would be appreciated.
