Embedding a clickable county map in Confluence page Edited

I'd like to embed a map of Michigan that includes an outline of each county, so that when a user clicks on the county, they are sent to a specific link.

 

I was thinking of trying to embed a Google Map interface and then adding a layer for counties later. I used code taken from the Google tutorial:

<body>
    <h3>My Google Maps Demo</h3>
    <div id="map"></div>
    <script>
      function initMap() {
        var uluru = {lat: -25.363, lng: 131.044};
        var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map'), {
          zoom: 4,
          center: uluru
        });
        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
          position: uluru,
          map: map
        });
      }
    </script>
    <script async defer
    src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=<my api key>I&callback=initMap">
    </script>
  </body>

But I'm struggling with that-- it doesn't appear on my page. I made sure that my API key is activated. The pre-existing page content gets shifted around as though the map was there, but it doesn't actually load:

Is there a better way to do this other than using Google Maps? I know there are a few map macros, but they seem to be out of date/no longer in use...

It sounds like you are describing an ImageMap of a map of Michigan. Please consider Scroll ImageMap. You can install it as a trial and see if it works for your use case before you buy it.

 

I would strongly prefer to use a free piece of software, if possible, since there are so many available. I can't really afford to pay for one.

You can also try the HTML macro. You can generate the ImageMap HTML by using a free utility like Easy ImageMap Generator.

I used the imagemap + html technique and it worked well, thank you. The specific generator you mentioned is unfortunately a bitcoin mining site, however there are other free image generators that are not.

Since I don't want to upload the specific flowchart image I'm using to a site, here is a helpful tutorial I followed to create an image map without using an online service. https://html.com/images/how-to-make-an-image-map/

Try removing the <body> tags. Never ever include <head> or <body> tags within the page content, you'll break the visuals on the page and you scripts won't execute.

You should also post any errors that log to your Browser Console.
