AmMap cannot read csv file directly. AmMap needs the data in properly-structured XML format, either like the data.xml examples provide with AMMAP, or include the XML data nodes in the HTML file using:
so.addVariable("map_data", ""); This line is used for including data directly in the HTML file instead of loading it from an external file.
You may want to start with some of the online documentation at: http://www.ammap.com/docs/
ammap.swf is the engine that makes the map work.
world3.swf is an example of a map that you can interact with and add your own data to. There also are single country maps, such as usa.swf or germany.swf or china.swf
ammap_data.xml is the data file ammap uses to populate your map with data.
Each area (country, province, etc.) on a map is identified by a code - example: mc_name="SZ". These codes must be used as listed in the data file that comes with each map - you cannot substitute your own codes. As per the documentation, there are several types of objects you can use with an ammap map:
- areas: countries, provinces, etc.
- lines: lines you add to show routes, pipelines, etc.
- movies: location markers
- labels: text lables you add to the map and position wherever you want to.
So, if you want to make Swaziland a certain color, in the data file node for Swaziland you would write something like:
<area title="SWAZILAND" mc_name="SZ" color="#000000"></area>
Now, when the map loads, Swaziland will appear black and the other countries will be the color you specify in your ammap_settings.xml file (red is the default). You do not need the lat/long coordinates for the areas. You can add pop-up boxes that contain longer descriptions by following the directions in the documentation. (There are also other attributes ytou can add (including teh zooming feature)
If you want to place a marker in the map, you would write something like the following:
<movie file="circle" title="Barbados" lat="-59.5333" long="13.1667" width="10" height="10" fixed_size="true">
<description><![CDATA[<b>Some html formatted description can be placed here</b>]]></description>
I recommend you look at the "Getting Started" documentation and the various working examples that come with AmMap to better understand how to make it work for your needs. When I started, I made a copy of the examples and started experimenting with making different changes to the data file to see how things worked.
