We did it with VML and Flash. And now... SVG!

XYZ Sistemas Industriales, S.A. (Santander, Spain) announces the
availability of Internet Mapper's SVG output.

We've put it on-line today, Nov 29th, 0900CET. When you enter the preview
you'll see a map. You can navigate it (N,S,E,W, zoom in and out, etc). The
maps are generated on-line by Internet Mapper from our server in Santander.

You have a status bar where you get streets and points of interest names,
just placing the mouse over them. If you click on a point of interest you
get extended information, a photograph and links to related pages. You can
also show/hide layers.

Right now you need Internet Explorer with Adobe SVG ActiveX control to use
the maps.

Ready for a SVG walkabout? Enjoy:

If you don't have the ActiveX control but want to check our output, here is
an example:

Use this file for code inspection only. If you rename to .svg and display
it, you won't get icons (are separate gif files) and you'll get browser
runtime errors when moving the mouse over the map (javascript routines are
called, which are also not included in the svg).

Our output is not completely optimized yet, so we will listen carefully to
any suggestion for improving it.

We tuned our output with Adobe SVG ActiveX Control and samples at their SVG
Technology Preview Program site
(http://www.adobe.com/web/features/svg/previewprog.html). If you are really
interested in SVG, then you REALLY SHOULD enter their preview program.
Thanks Adobe for such a great job.

We must also thank to Mike Gould (http://www.mgould.com). We would not be
able to make it work without his many contributions.

Saludos, Toņo.
