Is it possible to add an interactive map?

Recommended Posts

I am building a new website for my company - an international wine importer and distributor. We want to include a list of the wineries we work with and thought it would be cool to map each winery. I'd like to have a beautiful map of certain countries in Europe (more like an outline than something like google maps) and have each of the wineries mapped to their location. When you hover over each icon or whatever, I'd like to have something pop up and embed a link to their website in it. I was thinking maybe I could just find the type of map I want and include it as a photo then build the interactive elements on top of it? I have access to the Adobe Creative Suite as well so I could do portions in that.

If you can't already tell, I have no idea what I am doing. I am a quick learner though and if I could just find some tutorials or resources, I feel like I could figure out how to do it. I don't even know what to look for though and I'm not sure if this is something that is possible in squarespace. So can this be done? If so, any resources or information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!!

Jackie

Hi! I know this question is old, but it might help other users looking for the same.

I developed a map generator that creates simple maps, with country outlines, where you can add markers that can have tooltips and perform actions when clicked. You can have a map of the world, a specific continent or even a specific country divided by regions.

I wrote a quick tutorial on how it works and how to embed it on squarespace: http://cmoreira.net/blog/how-to-add-a-world-map-to-your-squarespace-website/

It's a premium script, but it comes with support and the embed code is compatible with Squarespace, from the tests I performed.

Hope it helps.

Squarespace didn't import this page when they changed from the 'Squarespace Answers' forum to the 'Squarespace Forum', but the page has been archived here:

There's also an excellent (paid) addon available called the 'Advanced Map Block' that allows you to easily embed multiple points in a Squarespace Map Block. You'll find details of this here:
