Here we use as a background image a US map image available here.


Current map’s ID is 69 (g i m a p  i d = ‘ 69 ‘ ), so we have to add the following CSS rules to theme’s CSS stylesheet (better!) (wp-content/themes/<your_current_theme>/style.css file )    or in current post in Text mode (in this case we will have to wrap with <style>….</style> ):

#gm69_visb path {
fill: transparent !important;
stroke: transparent !important;

#gm69_visb path:hover {
fill: #CC0000 !important;
opacity: 0.8 !important;
