Generating Interactive Maps
To give you an idea, here’s a how-to of basic interactive map generation using code:
If you’re not familiar with coding language, the steps below will just be gibberish to you. Take note that these are just the basics and do not involve debugging issues that commonly crop up.
- Generating a functional interactive map requires basic knowledge of JaveScript, MySql, PHP, and XML.
- Input location data into MySQL or a similar database management system.
- Update your MySQL database with the coordinates.
- Create an editing interface so you can easily update your map as needed; this is optional.
If you need to make corrections or changes to your map, you will have to rewrite some codes or write new ones. Generating an interactive map using code is time-consuming, to say the least, even if you know basic coding language and tools.
Fortunately, ShowMyMap makes generating an interactive map fairly easy.
