Interactive Canada Map

Interactive Canada Map, created with Google Interactive Maps WordPress Plugin.

Interactive Canada map for WordPress (Carte interactive du Canada). Map has customised tooltip. First of all- ensure that “Use Html Tooltip” is checked. Google geochart api automatically generates tooltip with following Html structure:

<div class=”google-visualization-tooltip”>
<ul class=”google-visualization-tooltip-item-list”>
<li class=”google-visualization-tooltip-item”><span>Tooltip Title</span></li>
<li class=”google-visualization-tooltip-item”>Tooltip main text</li>

The plugin generates each map in div block with id =    gm{maps current id}_visb   (for ex.   gm1_visb, gm99_visb etc). So if you plan to use multiple maps, you can customize tooltip with specifying maps id

#gm18_visb .google-visualization-tooltip {}
#gm18_visb { }
#gm18_visb .google-visualization-tooltip-item { }
#gm18_visb .google-visualization-tooltip-item span {}
#gm18_visb .google-visualization-tooltip-item:nth-child(2) {}

In current example, I used following demo CSS rules.

#gm18_visb .google-visualization-tooltip {
background: lightpink;
border-radius: 10px;
border: 1px solid red;
overflow: hidden;

#gm18_visb {
background: lightseagreen;

#gm18_visb .google-visualization-tooltip-item { /*you can use here also .google-visualization-tooltip > ul > li or can customise first child only .google-visualization-tooltip > ul > li:first-child*/
background: darkred;
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
text-align: center;
width: 100px;
word-wrap: break-word;

#gm18_visb .google-visualization-tooltip-item span {
background: deeppink;
color: #FFFFFF ! important;
text-transform: uppercase;

#gm18_visb .google-visualization-tooltip-item:nth-child(2) {
background: lightgoldenrodyellow;

Enable color by value is checked – to show maps regions colors based on each region some value. (from Min color value to Max color value).
