Includes make me happy

States of the Union

Major cities are listed in the index on the right.

Clickable US map (Click on Oregon or Washington state):

USA states

WA = Washington

OR = Oregon

I was not able to get them working by doing an include:

{% include us_states_museums.html %}


If you know me, I’ve got a bunch of complicated diagrams with lots of boxes and lines.

So I’ve been creating animations in PowerPoint, then recording explanations in videos that reveal each box and line.

That diagram on my website I would craft coordinates around each clickable area (image maps in HTML and now in CSS).

Jekyll supports collections

Making clickable maps

Several websites help in the tedious work of defining clickable areas:

  • https://makeaclickablemap.com

  • https://www.image-maps.com

Some examples make use of jQuery:

  • http://winstonwolf.pl is beautiful maps of European countries as well as the US.

  • http://www.outsharked.com/imagemapster/ jQuery

Sites that have nice maps

SVG if you have it

Scaled Vector Graphics stay sharp on all sizes.

  • http://freehtml5maps.com uses raphael javascript library to render the map in SVG or VML.

  • http://codecanyon.net/item/interactive-usa-map-html5/4527698 asks $13 for its SVG scalable/responsive USA map.

<svg version="1.1" id="Layer_1" xmlns="w3.org/2000/svg"; xmlns:xlink="w3.org/1999/xlink"; x="0px" y="0px" width="1343.791px" height="932.583px" viewBox="0 0 1343.791 932.583" enable-background="new 0 0 1343.791 932.583" xml:space="preserve"> <g id="Panama"> <path fill="#FDF9D1" stroke="#918E8F" d="..."/> </g> </svg>
