New State/Province Maps
In addition to the "Map of Photographed Countries" available from each member's 'Intro' page, it is now possible to view maps of photographed states/provinces/regions within countries. Currently a France map is available thanks to information provided by Viviane (<a href="/members/Porteplume/">Porteplume</a>); state/province/region maps from different countries will be coming eventually as well.

To see this feature in action, check out <a href="/map.php?ctr=France&member=Porteplume">Viviane's personalized France map</a> highlighting the different regions her photos were taken. A [view map] link will be displayed in each member's 'Intro' page next to every country in which one is available.

Note that photos taken in overseas areas such as Guadeloupe or Martinique etc. will not be highlighted.

If anyone encounters problems or has suggestions on how this feature may be improved, please let me know. Thanks!

"Would'nt it be nice if this state/map was clickable ?"

Yes, but technically I'm not sure how to automate this. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know here or via email, thanks.

It would be possible to display a number on each region to indicate which region it is but this would be awkward for countries containing provinces located very near each other as the numbers would intersect. If I can find a way around that I could add that in easily.

Re: New State/Province Maps
Adam, I can send you a Greek map with provinces and "alt" descriptions for people to see the province.
Also, I can make it "mapped 'n' clickable" if you want too, if you could provide me the site tree.

Re: New State/Province Maps
Hello Adam,

I'm not technical at all, but I have seen that when I "go with the mouse" over a picture, I can see a little square appearing with the name of picture + type of camera. Couldn't be possible to have that option giving the names on the different regions of the new State/Province Maps?

Amicalement - Viviane

Re: New State/Province Maps
Great feature, Adam! I always wonder where exactly some pictures were taken.

What do you need to add more maps? Just a image of a divided map and the names of the states are enough?

Re: New State/Province Maps
Just in case, I found some useful links:

Here, a good clean image:

And here: see the names of regions (by colors) and the states (in capital letters).

Is it enough?

I need to review any licensing issues. Also, minimum 500 pixel length would be good. Thanks for the pointers.
