SVG Maps in HTML

A work colleague approached me the other day with a requirement to build a flashy world map interface, minus the flash.

I thought about the requirements for a while before I turned to my Green Men with the same question.

They came back with SVG Vector images.

What are SVG Maps in HTML?

SVG is a way of visually displaying an image, without actually having the image available as a file.
