rollover US map plugin (4 posts)

    Just a shot in the dark here for something that would be really cool:

    Does anyone know of a plug-in or utility that would embed a map of the US that you could rollover and get different information for each state, possibly with each state linking to a post? I'm thinking something that works like WP-EventsCalendar http://tinyurl.com/cxjnxx but obviously is a map and not a calendar...

    How sweet would that be?

    (just to be clear, i'm not talking about google maps, just a simple map like this: LINK that you could rollover and get info (and maybe highlight states?)

    Ok check this out:

    It's an all-CSS rollover map.

    Pro:
    -All-CSS format means it would probably be easy to use with WordPress in order to have little excerpt previews and things like that

    Con:
    -The rollover field has to be a rectangle, obviously not good for a map. But I guess you could put the state initials in the middle of each state (or down the side for the smaller states) and just have that be the rollover hot spot... So not fatal
    -It would be a lot of work doing this for all 50 states, but that's not a big deal. I have access to caffeinated drinks.

    Thoughts?
