    Flash vs. Fireworks for Animation Map

    MarketInk
      Quick "flash" question. I need to supply a flash animation map of the US, where the user clicks on individual states... afterwhich the state color changes to a 2nd color and the data is ported to a website/dbase. Based on that info, can this be done in Fireworks or does it need to be Flash? Any help is greatly appreciated.

          Not sure about the data part of your question, but if you do a search for
          flash maps Google turns up a bunch of them, some free, some not.

            Those are easiest to do in Flash, where all you need to do is create
            buttons of each section of the map.
