    Internal map like Bing Mall's Map

    Hello everyone,
    a few days ago I saw the new Bing mall's maps. Link here and here.

    I'm a newbie and I was very impressed, so I was wondering just how did they do these internal maps. It 's a simple mashup or similar? Or use some special JS library?
    There are JS libraries (or other languages too) that gives the ability to create internal maps of buildings outside of google maps / bing maps? Like drawing a real internal map of house or other buildings (vector or not) by JS functions, variables and data ....

    Thanks for your help!

    PS: sorry for my english

    It looks like they just created images "by hand" for that and they overlay some effects with javascript and plop that layer down on top of the usual roadmap in the right place. They aren't creating those with svg or writing them "on the fly."

    For example, see this image:

    There are a series of those that outline the floor plan of the mall pice by piece.

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}

    Thanks for your post!

    I searched on google but I found nothing about it. There is a tutorial that explains how to make things like that? Especially for javascript effects.

    There are libraries for creating internal maps of buildings on the fly?

    Thanks all!!!
