PHP + Javascript UK Map

Hi,

Not sure where to post this, but will try here first.

I am looking for a UK map that allows the user to drill down to county, then
town level. A good example would be something like

Thanks

Have you considered using the Google Maps API http://www.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/
?
With some clever centering and zooming (there are boundary definitions
available for most if not all counties) you could have a similar
effect.

Good luck

You can achieve that with Google Maps API.

http://www.google.com/apis/maps/

You may also want to take a look at this forms generation class that
comes with map location plug-in. You can use that plug-in to select
locations in a map like in this live example:

http://www.meta-language.net/forms-e...location_input

Here you can watch a tutorial video about that plug-in:

http://www.phpclasses.org/browse/vid...lugin-map.html

You can also use the same plug-in to display a map with pre-defined
locations that the users can hover and click for more information. Take
a look at this example with UK PHP users groups:
