UK postcode map with SVG
A few weeks back I was trying to create a map to display sales for an online shop by postcode. I started off thinking about using an imagemap, but quickly progressed to experimenting with svg polygons – with the result you can see above. Hover over the areas to display the location, or click the checkboxes to highlight the marked areas. This is all done in html, no images.
Finally, of course, this will not work in IE8 and under.
Note that the map above shows Scotland and Northern England only. Doing the map took forever so…if you’d like a map of the whole UK you’re welcome, but a small donation will be required. Please get in touch if you’re interested. Here’s an image anyway:
