Good Plugin – Great support

I really like the Plugin and it does what it should.

Had a little problem with the responsive Design (see support) and got an answer with a solution within several minutes.

Thx

Advantage over software-generated maps

Awesome plugin and supporting documentation. Great user support. Simplemaps.com has a whole host of additional resources applicable to this plugin.

Using HTML, CSS, and JS/jQuery allows wider customization over software-generated map programs that utilize other methods of visualization, interaction, and data interpretation. For instance, embedding images within hover elements/tooltips is a breeze with this plugin.

Great work, simplemaps!
