Simplemaps – Interactive Maps With HTML/JavaScript Or Flash (3 Licenses Giveaway)

Maps are used so widely in web design and they are usually expected to be interactive when presenting data.

It can be the branches of an international company, statistics about  countries or just destinations to visualize. Like said, lots of uses.

Simplemaps is a website that provides professional, highly-customizable and interactive maps built with JavaScript and SVG (or Flash).

SVG Maps - Simplemaps

SVG has a wide browser-support and it works very well on mobile + tablet as well.

There are maps for “world/countries, continents, USA and Canada” and the usage +customization doesn’t require advanced development knowledge. It works by simply editing a text file and a detailed, step-by-step documentation exists.

Also, Simplemaps website has an online customization tool that enables the users to edit the countries, change colors, descriptions, links and more.

Considering that the maps are in vector (SVG), tiny or huge, they work great on all sizes. And, they even come with a zoom-in functionality.


With some JavaScript, it is so easy to add new features to them like tooltips, selectable regions and much more.

To sum up, SVG maps are definitely the way to go for modern web maps and Simplemaps has a wide range of products on the field.

P.S. For Flash fans, the website also offers similar maps in Flash with their source code.
