Do you mean a button that is invisible?

draw a shape
convert to symbol - make it a button
open the button and drag the first frame (labled up) over to the last frame (labled hit)

thats it, hotspot!

Sorry I took so long to reply.
Do you need the hotspots to be placed geographically accurate? Because if that is the case I recomend you to start using the Google Maps API (in JavaScrpit).
Anyway, your problem is placing the hotspots or making them show the info?
Let's say you have the map already, you need then to place the hotspots on the map, you want to do it "by hand" or have them load from an XML?
Loading from an xml then would be a little problem, very much like placing them by hand, because of the conversion of the coordinates (even if you don't want them to be that accurate), because then you may need to start checking if the coordinates (in pixels) are placed relatively accurate or near where they need to be, and correcting them to get the right position.

Tell me then, if what you want is to load them automatically from an XML I can explain to you how could that be done.
Or if you need geographical precision, I'll tell you where you can find the Google Maps API and it's documentation -it's easy to use if you are an intermediate to advanced javascript coder-
