Add Interactivity

You can add interactivity to the active regions:
  • A Tooltip- A tooltip will be displayed by default on hover with the information you provide.
  • An Action – You can set up diferent kinds of action for when the user clicks in an active area. You can make a new URL open, or simply display a message. Advanced users will be able to create their own Javascript functions for customized actions, like opening information with a lightbox effect.


You will be able to costumize the visual of your maps:
  • Background color;
  • Box border width and color;
  • Inactive regions color;
  • Individual colors for each active region;
  • Markers size;

If you’re a CSS pro, you can also create custom classes and customize the maps even further, creating hover effects, changing the mouse cursor, among other stuff.

Add the Maps anywhere on your website

You can use a shortcode to include the maps in posts, pages and even in sidebar widgets! You can also add the maps to your template, with a simple php function.


If no width is specified it will load with the maximum width available in the container div. For example, it will load and adapt with different sizes for phones/ipads/laptops. However, after loaded it will not change size if you resize the window.

Since version 1.4 the plugin includes an option to make the maps fully Responsive. This will use jQuery to check if the window size changed and will redraw the map with the new available space. RESPONSIVE INTERACTIVE MAP EXAMPLE

Cross device and browser compatible

The maps are built in SVG, no flash is used and therefore they will display in Mac products.

«Absolutely love this plugin. Very easy to use and set up. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a mapping solution! Great job.»

«This is the easiest to use plugin. I bought the plugin to use for a client’s site that does work all over the world. They wanted an easy way to display information about their work in different countries and this made my life so simple. Well worth the money and I’ll be back to purchase for any additional clients who need this type of functionality.»
Benjamin Bradley

«If anyone is thinking about buying this plug-in, don’t hesitate. It doesn’t get any better than this. If you think $18 is too steep, you’ve never struggled coding maps. This is such a time saver that I’d gladly have paid ten times the asking price. In fact, I’ve paid a pretty penny for software over the years hoping to save time and aggravation when it came to making interactive maps. Interactive World Maps is a gem.»
