Hi! Thanks for this great script :) I have just one question: Is there anyway to make the map display in full-width so that it always adapts to the size of the screen?

Hi! Thank you for using the plugin. If you leave the width and height values empty, the map will load with the maximum space available. Check if it works. Greetings, Carlos

Hi Carlos, is it possible to generate a map just from Malloca (ES). I try the Code ES-PM or ES-IB (ISO 3166-2:ES) but I get an error message. thank you!

Hi! Thank you for using the generator. The maps are generated using the Google Geochart API, which doesn’t include maps for individual spanish provinces, just the full map of Spain. So it is not possible to have a map focused on Mallorca aline. I’m sorry for this limitation. If you have any other question let me know. Greetings, Carlos

Hi cmoreira, presale question. I don’t know if I need to buy the wordpress plugin or this standalone generator. I do not want to install too many plugins on my site as it could be yet another potential slowdowner in terms of page loading. That would be the reason to choose this standalone map generator instead of the plugin. But then I read the plugin is fully responsive and the standalone map generator is only partial responsive? Is this right?

Hi Carlos, thanks for your ultraspeedy response :-) With the standalone version there is no way to make it more responsive than it is? Is there a huge overhead with the plugin? thanks, Koen.

The standalone maps to be more responsive would need extra javascript code, to ‘listen’ to screen changes and redraw the map. But at that point it would be better to have the WP version, that already has this. The WP version creates an extra table in the database to store the map data but I wouldn’t say the plugin is heavy. Consider that the maps load from a Google API, and the plugin only outputs/loads some light javascript code and css.

Thanks Carlos! Been busy for the last couple of days, as soon as I have time I will get into this.

I am generating a regions map..and select subcontinent, but the North America code also selects Greenland, which I didn’t think was a part of North America. How do i fix this?

Hi! Thank you for using the Generator. The code uses the Google Geochart API to generate the maps, which follow the United Nations Statistics Hierarchy listed here http://unstats.un.org/unsd/methods/m49/m49regin.htm which places Greenland in North America. The solution would be to use the country resolution and colour each country individually. Since the API provides the maps this way, we can’t do much. I’m sorry for this limitation. Greetings, Carlos

Hi, i bought your plugin, and i know installation service is not a part of the “normal” buy, but i think its very bad service that you have not included a “How to install” in the documentation.

Also, i have set up a https://jsfiddle.net/vooegn5u/ where i have tried to get the plugin to work since i could not get it to work on my site – but it doesn’t work in this jsfiddle either. What is wrong?

Hi Carlos, Thanks for your fast reply – it helped in the fiddle, but still wont work on my site – please check http://vinas.dk/roedvin and check the source of the site and search for “http://www.google.com/jsapi” – here you can see where i included the code in <head>. The is located right below the images listing the countries on the page – but no map shows up here. What am i doing wrong?

The is

<div id="" />
located right below the images listing the countries on the page – but no map shows up here. What am i doing wrong?
It might be related with the version of Prototype you have included in your site. Older versions have proven to be incompatible with the Google Visualization API. Try updating the version of prototype and check if it solves the issue. You have the code in the file
/js/f0f2ea9fa6cded0aeda99accb39a0c47.js
Let me know if the problem persists. Greetings, Carlos

Can I use a map of my own? how easy is it to customize borders etc? do you have a map of the lower mainland BC, Canada in your software package? Can your software set it so when I mouse over a region it will change the color?

Hi! Thank you for your interest in the generator. It is only possible to use the maps already available, since they are generated with the Google Geochart API, which doesn’t have the option to use custom maps. So it is not possible to create custom borders, and there’s only the map of full Canada available. I’m sorry for this limitation. If you have any other question let me know. Greetings, Carlos

Hi carlos, I like your map a lot but I have a little problem. When I open the local demo page and test the German map, it works perfectly. When clicking a location the adress (Munich or Hamburg) will appear under the map. This is exactly what I want :)

But when I copy the settings from the demo and past it into the according field in the generator, the map looks exactly the same as on the demo, but when clicking Hamburg or Munic, there will appear a browser alert.

I have checked boths maps (my map in the generator with the copied settings from the demo and the demo itself) and I have checked the screenshot from the settings you provide on the online demo page.

It all looks exactly the same but it wont work.

Thanks in advance for your support!

Hi Rob. You can either use the regions mode or markers mode to specify the colours of markers or the countries. Unfortunately in the generator version it is not possible to combine both modes. There are some solutions involving CSS, but they are not ‘future proof’ (the API can be updated and some selectors might change). But if you send me a message using the contact form on the support tab, sharing the link to your map, I can give an example of how this would work. Greetings, Carlos

Hi carlos,

I have sent you an email but I never received an anser?

The issue is quite urgent, so I would be gratful so get informtations how to achieve the styling asap.

Thanks in advance for your support.

Hi Rob! I answered your message a couple of days ago to the email ‘hello at weblab.berlin’. But I see today you mentioned a new email. I sent a copy of my answer to this new email. Greetings, Carlos

Hello, you write ” If no width is specified it will load with the maximum width available in the container div. ” But when i leave the width blank there is no map generated and just a white area. Can you help me? btw: ..i use v1.1

Best regards

Hi! Thank you for using the generator. Might be a small error on the output. Can you write me a message via the contact form on the support tab and share your output code or the current settings code? Greetings, Carlos

Hi This is a great plugin. Thanks for the awesome work!!! I am trying to use this with popup maker, so that I can get a popup window to open up when the user clicks on the country icon. I am using the popup window, because I have a comprehensive set of data I want to demonstrate for every EU country. It is easier to do in the popup maker.

Thanks!!

The code you provide targets a specific created popup and opens it. But for the maps we need a different approach. You should check the popup plugin documentation or ask the developer what would be the code to trigger a popup where you define the content directly in the javascript. It would be something like this, translating what fancybox does:
jQuery.popmake(
{
content: value
});

The ‘value’ variable will automatically fetch the content you place in the action value for each entry of the map. Hope it helps! Greetings, Carlos

I figured about a really easy way to do this. I set the action value to none, then I found the CSS path to each circle in the map, copied it and set it in the popup maker css trigger box. Kind of a hack, but a really effective one.

Glad you managed to find a solution! Cheers, Carlos

One more question. I was wondering if there is a way to change the view port on my map? I am working on something similar to this: http://www.fico.com/landing/fraudeurope2013/ and would also like to have some text to the left describing the section. I would like to get rid of all the wasted ocean space that serves no purpose now that I’ve hidden iceland. Here’s a link to our site: https://www.durangomerchantservices.com/big-piece/

The Geochart API doesn’t provide options to manipulate the viewport unfortunately. However, in the WordPress version, below the map preview in the administration, you can find the ‘Custom CSS Generator’ options. You can manipulate the fake zoom values to manipulate the viewport a bit. Hope it helps. Greetings, Carlos

can we have a particular state in a specific color while using round markers?

Hi! Thank you for your interest in the generator. The generator version is not able to do this, but with the WordPress version yes: http://cmoreira.net/interactive-world-maps-demo/advanced-tips/overlay-maps-regions-map-markers-text-labels/ This is done by creating 2 maps and overlaying them with css. But the generator is not able to do this operation, it would need to be done manually. Greetings, Carlos

I need to split California in to 2 sections – North and South. How can I do this?

Hi! Thank you for using the generator. Unfortunately it is not possible to create custom regions, and the generator doesn’t have a map with North and South California divided. The only workaround would be to use the ‘Metropolitan areas’ map, and use work with the available DMA regions. Hope the info helps and I’m sorry for this limitation. Greetings, Carlos

Is there a way to have only California using Metro Areas and the rest of the map using states? Or can I somehow use my own SVG file with my own points?

Unfortunately this is not possible. The maps are generated using the Google Geochart API, which doesn’t allow us to do this. And since the generator relies only on the Geochart API it is also not possible to use custom maps. Sorry for this limitation.

Love the Plugin – Having an issue with Multisite – I have followed your instructions on uploading etc but I get a “ERROR: Map NOT Added” when trying to build a map in new region site!

Hi! Check if this information helps: https://codecanyon.net/item/interactive-world-maps/2874264/faqs/17881 Did you follow those steps of activation also? Greetings, Carlos

Hi Carlos. Thanks so much for this plugin, it’s great. I am using the standalone plug-in and I have two questions:

1) My markers appears perfectly on a desktop version, but for mobile the map appears, as expected but without the markers.

2) I would like to be able to take the user to a photo album (another page on my website) when a marker is clicked on. I have tried by using the following code, but can’t get it working. What am I missing?

data.addRows([[{v:’Bangkok Thailand’,f:’Bangkok, Thailand’},0,’‘]]); ivalue[‘Bangkok Thailand’] = ‘http://victorianguyenn.squarespace.com/#/bangkok-thailand/';

Thanks so much in advance.

Hi! Thank you for using the generator! The markers might not be displaying on mobile because they may be taking longer to load. My advice would be to use the coordinates mode, using coordinates for the markers ‘region code’ instead of the name of the location. Using coordinates will speed up the loading of the markers. To have a URL open when you click a marker make sure to also have the ‘active region action’ set to ‘open new url’, which will add the necessary code to open the url. If you share the link to the page where you have the code I can check if there’s anything else that could be improved. Greetings, Carlos

Hi,is it possible to ad adsense to it,because,wanna use this app as a standalone for every user to create their maps for their websites,cheers

Hi! Thank you for your interest in the generator! You would need to purchase the Extended License, since you would be monetizing from the app. Extended license seems to allow this. If you have any other question let me know. Greetings, Carlos

Hello Author,

I have only some pre-sales-questions: 1. Zooming with Icons and Mouse-Wheel is available? 2. The World map provides also small Countries like Andorra? 3.Is it possible to create routes or path with you plugin?

Thank you very much for your answers

pib

Hi! Thank you for your interest in the plugin.

1) There is a simple zoom feature, but it has limitations. For example, it doesn’t have a mouse-wheel zoom action. You can try it here.

2) The data for small countries is rendered, but is some cases, like Andorra, the country will be too small to display, even with the zoom, since the zoom doesn’t go into such detail. Usually I recommend users to add a marker to smaller locations that they need to be clickable.

3) At this moment it is not possible to create routs or paths.

If you have any other question let me know. Greetings, Carlos

Thank you for awesome plugin, but I wonder if the map in wordpress version is able to be used in html, I really love the lightbox but non-wordpress version does not provide.

Hi! Thank you for using the generator! The WordPress version is only ready to work with WordPress. If you have a lightbox script in your html site, you should be able to integrate it with the maps form the generator, using the ‘custom action’. You would just need to know how to trigger the lightbox script you might have. An example using fancybox would be:
jQuery.fancybox(
{
type: 'image',
href: ivalue[selectedRegion]
});
Hope it helps! Greetings, Carlos

I unfortunately bought the non-Wordpress version. How can I upgrade?

Hi! You can purchase the WP version and ask for a refund of the non-WP version. Greetings, Carlos
