Display specific US States only

If you need to build a map where only some states of the US display, you can use this plugin to achieve that. You’ll simply need to select the normal US map and then use the option to specify which regions you want to use.

In this example we specified some of the states in the east cost as the only regions to display on the map.

Display specific US States only

This technique works for any country and you can specify any of the available regions on the chosen map. You can also do the opposite and specify which regions to exclude.

And the good news is that this feature is part of the free version!

US and Canada divided by regions

With Interactive Geo Maps Pro you can display multiple maps together using the overlay feature. You just need to create each map separately and then in one of them instruct to load the other one. We used this feature to create a map of United States of America divided by states together with the map of Canada divided by provinces and territories.

To achieve the result above you need to create 2 maps. One for the US and another one for Canada and create the interactivity you want in the regions or add markers. Once you have the 2 maps, you can edit one of them and in the ‘Overlay’ section simply select the other map. That map will now display both maps together.

You can set different colors and click actions for each individual state or marker in both maps.

World Map with US divided by states

Having a world map with the US divided by states in your WordPress site is now possible with Interactive Geo Maps PRO.

The PRO version of the plugin will allow you to ‘overlay’ maps. In the example above we created 2 separate maps. A world map and a map of the US divided by states.

In the world map we selected to overlay the US map. As simple as that. You can overlay as many maps as you want in the ‘base’ map. You could have other countries divided by regions if needed.

You will be able to add interactivity to any country and any state in the map, setting up custom hover colours, tooltip content and click actions.

Advanced Map Zoom

The free version of the plugin offers a simple zoom feature, with zoom in/out controls display at the bottom right of the map and the ability to drag/pan the map with the mouse or in a touch device. The Pro version of the plugin will include more options to enhance the zoom feature, including:

  • Home Button
  • Double click zoom
  • Mouse wheel zoom
  • Change controls position

Advanced Zoom Example

In the map above you can use the mouse wheel to zoom, double click and use the home button to reset the map position. We added the controls to the bottom left position, but they can be in any of the map’s corners.

These features are only available on the PRO version of the plugin, which you can try for free, soon.
