small application in java.script

P: n/a
I need to make a window, which will be later placed on the internet page.
In the window should be some map dispalyed. But this map is in fact a simple
graphic file (e.g in *.jpg format)
The cities, which appear on the map should not be attached to the map. They
should come from a separate data base (e.g. MySQL).
If someone place a mouse over a city then some links should be displayed
between this city and some other selected cities. All links also should come
from a separate database.
In addition there should be possibility to zoom and move map in window.

Is java.script a right tool to make such application? Is there any one who
is interested to make such application?
Gogle map is not the right solutuion here.

The aplication in fact may work exactly as it is shown on page

Hey, yeah this can be done with java script. It is called image
mapping and you can set coordinates to a link that corresponds to a
place on the image. This isn't the best way to do it and lots of math
functions involved depending on screen res. You can also float or
layer graphics and have functions running onMouse over which can give
you more options on how interactive and dynamic the page can be. This
is a more practical solution and it is easier to do and will look more
effective. Your third choice would be making the map as a flash
animation. That is what is on the website link you provided, but even
though the graphic is flash the action script to make the map animated
like that is java script.

*JavaScript*. Yes.

I suppose it depends how much you are paying.

That's a Flash file.
