I'm thinking about doing a map system in Flash, its only a little idea i was thinking about while messing the other day.

So at the moment i'm jsut throwing around a few ideas and doing some research, what i think th emovie will do is load in some bitmap of a specified county area and then you'll be able to zoom in and out and stuff, maybe have the GPS or some kind of co-ordinates system on it.

This is all new to me, sop any ideas etc... would be cool, the main thing is where can i get maps, with maybe some co-ordinates in the image name or by a sperate lookup index, (Database maybe).

Anyone any poiunters or heard of a project like this already, the basic idea is similiar to, its all gonna be free etc......
