Interactive World Maps
This is a WordPress plugin to create as many maps as you want, with interactive and colored markers, continents, countries or regions.
(Check out the standalone non-wordpress version here)
Fully compatible with the brand new WordPress v.5

A map of the entire world.
A continent or a sub-continent. (Africa, Europe, Americas, Asia, Oceania and all their sub-continents)
A country. (virtually all the countries in the world are included, featuring the most requested: USA, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Brazil, India, Australia…)
A country divided by its regions. *

A state in the United States divided by metropolitan areas.
Color Regions or add Markers
You can add active colored regions to the map, and display them in 2 different ways:
As Regions – It will color the whole region, for example a continent, subcontinent, a country, a country province, or a US state.
As Markers -It will display a colored bubble in the chosen regions, that can be a city, a state or a country.
See the DEMO to see how they interact!
You can add interactivity to the active regions:
A Tooltip- A tooltip will be displayed by default on hover with the information you provide.
You will be able to costumize the visual of your maps:
Box border width and color;
Inactive regions color;
Individual colors for each active region;
Width and Height of the map;
Add the Maps anywhere on your website
You can use a shortcode to include the maps in posts, pages and even in sidebar widgets! You can also add the maps to your template, with a simple php function.
If no width is specified it will load with the maximum width available in the container div. For example, it will load and adapt with different sizes for phones/ipads/laptops. However, after loaded it will not change size if you resize the window.
Since version 1.4 the plugin includes an option to make the maps fully Responsive. This will use jQuery to check if the window size changed and will redraw the map with the new available space. RESPONSIVE INTERACTIVE MAP EXAMPLE
Cross device and browser compatible
The maps are built in SVG, no flash is used and therefore they will display in Mac products.
CSS Hacks made easy
There a few features that the Google Geochart API doesn’t provide by default, but the plugin provides a ‘Custom CSS Generator’ to help implement some features like hover colour change effect, implement font icons as markers, change border colour, among others.
Example of map using font icons from fontAwesome toolkit using some CSS tricks, available from version 1.7.3 released January 2016. Learn more about this technique.

«Absolutely love this plugin. Very easy to use and set up.
Highly recommended to anyone looking for a mapping solution! Great job.»SBMAG
«This is the easiest to use plugin. I bought the plugin to use for a client?s site that does work all over the world. They wanted an easy way to display information about their work in different countries and this made my life so simple. Well worth the money and I?ll be back to purchase for any additional clients who need this type of functionality.»Benjamin Bradley
«If anyone is thinking about buying this plug-in, don?t hesitate. It doesn?t get any better than this. If you think $18 is too steep, you?ve never struggled coding maps. This is such a time saver that I?d gladly have paid ten times the asking price. In fact, I?ve paid a pretty penny for software over the years hoping to save time and aggravation when it came to making interactive maps. Interactive World Maps is a gem.»Mark
* The maps of countries divided by regions include the main regions of the specified country. The plugin calls all of them ‘Provinces’ but in reality they could be states, regions, provinces or counties, depending of the country. They are the first level of division of a country. In the particular case of UK, it only includes 4 regions (ENG, NIR, SCT and WLS). The maps of some small countries divided by regions are not available, since the country is too small (Malta for example). If you need to make sure a map divided by regions is available, contact us via the support tab.
