Hi guys, kinda off topic but not really. The terminology overlaps, but
I'll try it anyhow :)
I want to take an image of a map from mapserver and use HTML image maps
(not to be confused with "image of a map") as web links to other documents.
I know I could do the same sort of thing with Mapserver, but the target is
for offline usage. If would be really nice to be able to do this kind of
thing in a PDF file but even just straight HTML would do.
Here's my (more direct) question. Anyone got any ideas for how I could
take a shapefile or other vector data and use it as an HTML image map (aka
hotspots?) on a web page. The input data would have some value in it that
points to a URL or other file.
Any ideas? Boy that's convoluted to explain.
