Interactive Image Map
I'm not sure if I am in the right forum, but I am looking to create something similar to this image:http://www.ohl.com/interactive-supply-chain-overview It was done in Flash, which I don't want to use because I want it to work on iOS devices.
Does anyone know if there is a tutorial or framework on this anywhere? Another forum?
Thanks for your help.
This was done back in the day with HTML and still can be. It's an image with hot spots(areas that are clickable)
I didn't spend much time here, but it does look like the proper way to do it. Called interactive maps BTW.
A HTML-image-map might be required, if you want some areas in the big image to react on an event. It's commonly used when these areas are complex in shape, i.e. not regular rectangles.
So for that flash you posted, HTML-image-map technique might not be required since all the click-and-select menus are in rectangles.
I can't figure out though how to replicate that blinking-shadow of a certain area/ spot (when a menu is selected)... layers of stacked image, perhaps?
Hint: if you need to code this yourself, then jQuery might ease your way:)
