    Making maps for the net

    Heck, thought I'd start using this section as well. Question lies in Image Maps for the net (ala, they type you find advertised on Microsoft.net's main page, and a yahoo service etc.)

    Anyone know how to make them and go about them? What would be the best system to get the closest route? Dijkstra's Theory?

    Hm. AFAIK, you use the <map> and <area> elements of HTML, with an underlying image.

    Yes, exactly like mapquest. Anyone attempted making such maps from scratch? Or know how to go about it?

    this is not an advertisement, mod it if you need to.
    on http://www.multimap.com they are hiring people and it shows what there requirements are like Mysql programming etc. so it gives it away a little of how they work.

    Spammers next time you spam me consider the implications:
    (1) that you will be persuaded by me(in a legitimate mannor)
    (2)It is worthless to you, when i have finished

    I think you can do image map thing in Dreamweaver MX too
    You can satisfy some of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time. But never all of the people all of the time.
