Are there any inter-active maps that work well with Cascade?

We want to have a world map that we can interact with on the continent level to link to and display relevant information for our organization in the highlighted geographical area.

Any suggestions?

    I think it's certainly possible to have some interactive maps via Google Maps. There is a public API for maps calls and embedding JavaScript into Templates and Pages is definitely supported. Combining a Data Definition with a custom Block, Page, or Template should give you the desired effect I think you're looking for.

    We use Google MyMaps. It provides a really nice interface for making a pretty basic map with markers, shapes, lines, etc. Then we simply embed the MyMap into a page in Cascade.

    Here is an example:

    Here's some information on the MyMaps service:
