I have been developing websites for a long time and one of the hardest things I have to deal with in recent times is an interactive location map for Contact pages. With simple maps, my work will become easier allowing to me add interaction to the maps and leaving me time to work on other parts of the site. If my clients are happy, I am too.

We are looking to update our maps on to display where scientific research is being done around the world for curing breast cancer. This might be the best solution and reduce development time.

I would use it to replace the flash-based world map we use to highlight the sites of international research institutions with which we cooperate.

Our current system needs someone to carefully edit an xml file adding lats, longs and hex colors for each institution. I hope that this solution would allow for an easier update process, and for more information about the institutions to be added to the map.

How would you use your Simplemaps HTML5 World Map license?

First off I would use it on a Non-Profit Community side-project I have been working on in my spare time for the last couple of months that would point out Support Locations for a variety of issues including addiction, STD’s, mental health etc.
Also I would be playing around with all the features I can and hopefully be able to use it to collect data and it will be useful for User Info and other location based data that would benefit alot of my projects.

Good Luck All!
