Maps and Location-related Data with KoolMap

We’re happy to release the version 3.0 of KoolMap. KoolMap is a tool that displays interactive SVG maps with showing the location-related data on the web and has many features designed specifically for interactive maps and data visualization.

The Free trial is ready to be downloaded, http://www.koolchart.com/download. Once you download KoolMap, you can install it on the web server or your local machine. Just extract the archive into the folder you want, and open index.html in your web browsers, then you will see many useful samples. You can create your own Map Charts easily using the samples, and you just need to include a link to the library file (KoolMap.js) and the license file (KoolMapLicense.js) in the web page.

You will be able to find free SVG maps from internet resources, such as Wikipedia:Blank maps, but if you will not be able to get your country map, please send a request email to Technical Support. We provide a country map to KoolMap customers free of charge.
