Dear Friends,

I want to make a map with some effects such as zoom or showing text on over mouse moving . but i don't know where i should start?
I do some search and i understand that it can make by flash , CSS and javaScript .
Do you think yahoo map or google map can help me?
if someone has experience on this , Please introduce a link or guide me.

Thanks in advance,
Zohreh

Can it help you?

We do not know what you are doing exactly. Hav you looked at the Yahopo and Google Map apis? You can do a lot with them.

One of my co-workers built
http://www.georec.com
using the webservice API that Google offers.

I, personally, haven't done much with them but, as you can see, there is quite a bit you can do with them.

If you are so inclined, I wrote two chapters for Ajax in Practice that delve into using Map APIs (along with APIs for Google and Flickr).
