Think my question is simple if I have understood your description.
Basically need a coloured map of England (but all UK would do) which identifies every county. A pop-up giving info with URL link(s) for more info. Also a marker map with county boundaries shown with same sort of pop-up.
Hi Colin,

Yes you can colorize each "province" (name of province isnot appropriate in UK I guess) and add a link or an HTML sidebar description (new feature).
No problem too to display the same map with marker and same boundaries.

Thanks for response. Perhaps I should explain better. England in UK is split into around 40 counties. It is these that I want to show. There seems to be a google maps definition and I think perhaps your software uses the google stuff. I have attached a couple of image files. The gif shows county boundaries and markers. My main interest is the county boundaries. The other one is, I think, a google derived map. There seems to be some 'kml' files (?).

Colin, Hi

By any chance did you find a UK county map for Joomla?

I could really do with one!

Thank you, kind regards

In the end I took a copy of an SVG one and made it operate in Joomla. Please see attached pics. The map is interactive so if you hover over a County it changes colour as in the second pic. If you click it takes you to a page specific to that county. In my case it was County Associations of Parish and Town Councils. You can also add annotation. The code is pure SVG so it is a bit hard and is not user friendly to change, but it works. There are a couple of minor 'bugs' in some offshore islands are not filled in but I got fed up with locating them in the main contour set.
And as I was concentrating on the map itself I wrote the code directly into the page itself!!! It should of course be in a module (or plugin) but I did not get round to doing it. So if you are still interested I will send it on an as is basis directly to you. Maybe your interest will spark me into doing more!!

Hi there guys,

Can someone confirm to me that the United Kingdom custom vector map view allows to highlight/colorise the England region, Ireland Region etc. and also respectively add markers. Here's what I've got so far, unfortunately it didn't let me colorise any of the countries even tho I used the upper case codes from ISO-3166-2:GB.

Also if you know how to lock the zoom option so that I can only display England but again having the markers/location dots
displaying that will be greatly appreciated.
