Trying to gather some information on how to create a flash map.

Nothing too crazy.

I want to take an image of the State of Idaho, separated by counties, and as you hover over each county, it kind of highlights and enlarges a bit, with informational text and a link to or several links to important county information...

thanks

first thing you need to do is trace the counties one by one. Once you have a shape, convert it to a symbol (F8) and select button. Put a keyframe in the over state and change the color/appearance to whatever you want. That will give you the hover part. You could then create another movie clip for the text and links that would trigger upon clicking on the county.

Well, i think i got that done...

Although i must admit it looks a bit hokey and plain...but does the job.

I have looked at several tutorials for interactive maps and can not seem to get them to work properly, maybe becuase im using FlashMXpro and they arent....

they have cool effects like fading colors, and flying images that show up when you hover over the selected area....

Are their any FLA sample files or tutorials specifically for MX that i might be able to look at to get some effect like that?

for the fading colors... create a movie clip that changes colors in the speed you want then you can place that movie clip in the over state of the button.
