This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



This plugin is designed to allow users to create a custom SVG map that can then be inserted in a page or post, using the Datamaps JavaScript framework. Via the plugin’s settings page
in the WordPress Admin, users can select the location they want pinpointed on the map, as well as editing the colors and size of the map.


  1. Upload wp-datamaps to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to the ‘Map Settings’ page in the Admin and set the colors and size of the map.
  4. Insert the shortcode [d3map] on the page or post where you want the map to appear.


How should colors be specified on the settings page?

Identify colors by their six digit hex codes.

Can I insert multiple maps?

At present, no. However, future versions may include this feature.
